As you may have read already, CLMA's Thinklab '08 conference, scheduled for later this month in Atlanta, was cancelled due to damage inflicted on the venue by the recent tornados that swept the downtown area.
Here is CLMA's statement:
CLMA has just been notified by officials at the Georgia World Congress Center that the site of our conference will not be available due to serious safety issues caused by damage resulting from the March 14 tornado that struck downtown Atlanta.
Unfortunately, CLMA has been forced to cancel ThinkLab `08, scheduled for March 29 through April 1, 2008.
CLMA staff has been on-site in Atlanta viewing the damage first-hand and has been in close communication with key officials at the Georgia World Congress Center and Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau.
CLMA is sensitive to the needs of CLMA members and industry partners. We are busy working to resolve the unique and challenging issues created by this unfortunate act of nature. Over the upcoming days, we will be sharing information to address issues and concerns you have.
We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused, and appreciate your patience, understanding and support as we move forward.
