CES/Hometech Dubai Event is Canceled
The International CES/Hometech event in the Persian Gulf city of Dubai, which had been scheduled for next April, will not take place, the event's co-organizer, Epoc Messe Frankfurt GmbH, announced on its Web site Sunday.
The event was called off due to "market conditions and the overall economic crises." Epoc Messe, which was to coordinate the event along with the Consumer Electronics Association, organizes 10 top trade shows in the United Arab Emirates.
"Our partner on that indeed canceled the show," CEA's director of communications, Tara Dunion, said Monday. "That region continues to be an important one, and we continue to pursue opportunities in that region."
