More and more companies were pulling out… May as well just go ahead and cancel it…

In the mobile field, over in Europe I’ve been seeing a steady reduction in the number of medium-sized one-off events, with a trend to combining several of them occupying different sections of floorspace at one venue.

I can speculate that the attraction for potential exhibitors may be dropping off, so that deciding whether to attend, or pull out if a problem arises, are much more marginal choices.

I also agree that it’s mostly the networking that has kept these events alive, but now that most businesses have the bandwidth to run decent videoconferencing it’s slowly becoming more common to meet virtually with potential customers, suppliers, or collaborators.
