Comdex expects attendance to falter

Author: JT Smith

From USA Today: "The Las Vegas conference, a mecca for high-tech heavyweights,
expects attendance at the Nov. 12-16 event to plunge 25%, to 150,000 -
its lowest figure in 9 years.

The tech downturn and dot-com implosion play a part - along with
concerns about travel, security and anthrax. The cost to the city? About
$65 million in lost revenue." The report blames it on Sept. 11, but we're betting the near-100% inflation rate during the week Comdex is playing might have a little something to do with it, too.
