Thank you all for your patience as we’ve considered the options available for SGIA ’05.
In the last 24 hours, we’ve talked extensively with representatives from New Orleans, Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center and SGIA ’05 exhibitors. Based on our conversations, and concerns about the level of logistics involved, we’ve decided it’s in the best interests of exhibitors and attendees to cancel SGIA ’05.
SGIA ’05 in New Orleans was well on its way to being the best SGIA Convention in recent memory. The quality and quantity of exhibitors and attendees was staggering. In moving to Atlanta, as we discussed, we faced the challenge of delivering the same level of value to attendees and exhibitors. Unfortunately, the challenge is simply too great to accomplish in the few weeks available.
We greatly appreciate the efforts of the people in New Orleans and Atlanta who have worked hard on our behalf. However, there’s just too much to do in too short a period of time.
Moving forward, SGIA will focus its efforts on SGIA ’06 (Las Vegas, September 26–29, 2006) and other educational events.
Full details for SGIA '05 Exhibitors and Attendees will be available by the end of the week.
Again, thank you all for your patience and understanding.
