Supercomm 2010 'Shelved' by Owners
The two groups say their conference manager -- Expocomm Events LLC, which is owned by E.J. Krause & Associates, Inc. and Reed Exhibitions -- is the party that pulled out because of "financial projections for the show this year."
No other details were available so it's too early to tell if "shelved" just means put up until later, as opposed to binned, scrapped, chucked, or taken out back and shot -- more artistic phrases which denote a bit more finality.
"Right now, we're not prepared to comment any further," said a TIA spokesman, when reached via phone.
Supercomm did take place in 2009 and was managed by Expocomm Events LLC, but no attendance figures were ever officially released. The show's Website says that "over 6,000 industry professionals participated in the event," but it's unclear if that's an attendance estimate or an audited figure.
And, yes, this show has had something of a problem with its marketing. (See 10 Reasons to Attend Supercomm.)
