SiliconFreak -> CeBit 2005 Canceled! (8/4/2004 10:06:19 AM)

The CeBit America 2005 trade show has been cancelled because it was unable to create sufficient revenue to justify a third year, reports ZDNet.

With the show receiving growing interest from the public, the cancellation of the show – due to take place in New York in June – comes as somewhat of a surprise, says CeBit America brand and customer development VP Bill Sell. "We were making some significant progress; some pretty significant partnerships that weren't announced yet."

Future shows will need a more specific focus, adds Sell. "You need to make it worth it to people, and having Xbox next to flat panels next to servers doesn't work."

Joachim Schafer, president of Hannover Fairs USA, the organiser of the global CeBit fair, says the show will not likely be back, and the company will now focus on well-defined vertical markets. According to the company, all other CeBit events will not be affected by the cancellation.

I am hearing next year's CeBit will be a grand fiasco too!
Thankfully, we can, at last, spend our money more productively...
