Ryan from AMDMB has posted this summary article from Comdex Fall 2002. He seemed quite disappointed with the event overall and wondered if we will even see Comdex 2003.
Overall, Comdex looks to be falling by the wayside. Numbers are still up in the air for the total attendance, but just from my own experience and the opinions of local Las Vegas residents (i.e.: cab drivers!), the show is even less crowded than last year - and being as how closely last year's show followed 9/11, that is a disappointing fact. There were fewer vendors taking up less show floor, yet I still had less problems walking around the floor due to crowds than I did in the past. Coupling this with the recent financial problems that Key3Media has been having, and you have to wonder if we will even have a Comdex 2003 show. I certainly hope we do, because of Comdex fails and closes, I think it will be a while before we see another technology show of this kind in the US.More information @ AMDMB
