CES Kills Comdex

from the bye-bye-now dept

For years, people have pointed out that Comdex just doesn’t have the same pull it used to. Many people thought that there wouldn’t be a Comdex last year after its parent company, Key3Media went bankrupt and other, competing shows, jumped in to take its place. The show still happened, though without much interest. Apparently, the interest is even less this year, and there will be no Comdex this year. They claim that it will come back the following year, but I wouldn’t bet too much money on that happening. In the meantime, everyone had already shifted their Las Vegas conference travel plans to January’s CES anyway, so it’s unlikely this will actually impact anyone.

Re: Poor Taxi Drivers

Heh. The one time I went to Comdex, years back, the taxi driver who took me from the airport to the hotel told me how much she hated everyone going to Comdex because they never tipped well… basically she was bitching me out for tipping poorly before I ever tipped her. Seemed they never liked the Comdex attendees.
