To be clear, our fall show (2010 Enterprise & Applications) will be in San Francisco.
We have enjoyed bringing our three day fall show to San Francisco five times in the last seven years, which has meant we’ve brought more than 68,000 exhibitors and attendees and had an economic impact of almost $80 million to the Bay Area economy.
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors’ action made it clear how the city views the industry, so rather than go where we’re not wanted, we won’t consider it as a venue for the foreseeable future. But just to make sure it’s clear, we fully intend to honor our contract. The 2010 Enterprise & Applications show in October will be in San Francisco.
We’ll let you know when we’ve selected a site for 2011.
