One of the largest digital marketing conferences, ad:tech, has announced it has canceled its Miami event for 2009 "due to current economic conditions." Ad:tech Miami started in 2007 and has a stronger Hispanic focus than it's sister conferences in New York and San Francisco and Chicago. Below is the e-mail I received of the news:
Due to current economic conditions, ad:tech has made the decision to cancel its Miami event in 2009.
ad:tech is proud to have celebrated 2 consecutive years in Miami with events in '07 and '08. However, we will now integrate US Hispanic and Latin-based content into our North American programs in New York, San Francisco and Chicago. We continue to maintain a strong commitment to the US Hispanic-Latin American digital media marketplace and will also explore alternative and complimentary platforms for serving this ever-growing segment of our industry.
We offer our deepest appreciation for the generous support of the attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers, media partners, vendors and our esteemed Miami Board of Advisors who worked so diligently to create such a vibrant and well-received event. We look forward to working with all of you in some capacity in 2009 and beyond.
The ad:tech Management Team
