Katrina Impacts Physical Trade Show Schedules

InXpo Online Show provides assistance to the trade shows.

InXpo, the leader in the production of online shows, recently announced new dates for the International Carwash Association online tradeshow Car Care World e-Xpo 2005, November 9-13; the need to reschedule the event was a direct result of the Hurricane Katrina tragedy. A car care industry-related organization that was to host a physical trade show scheduled for late October in New Orleans needed to reschedule their show due to the affects of Katrina. Though a new location was found the only dates available coincided with the previously scheduled Car Care World e-Xpo 2005; since both shows serviced the same companies the date conflict needed to be addressed. The solution was simple – InXpo worked with the International Carwash Association to modify the dates of their online show and notified all participants via electronic communication.

“Overall it was easy – no new contracts to write with convention centers, no new hotel room blocks to secure, no airline flights to change and no freight shipments to reschedule – and that just for show management. It was even easier for our Car Care World e-Xpo 2005 exhibitors. They didn’t have to make any changes except to reschedule their e-Xpo booth personnel. Talk about drastically increasing the flexibility, responsiveness and nimbleness of an organization,” commented Mark Thorsby, Executive Director of the International Carwash Association, shortly following the reschedule of the e-Xpo.

InXpo’s format allows for the same powerful tradeshow experience without the hassles. More importantly, flexibility is built into the show service so that all who wish to be involved in the show have the opportunity to do so with greatest of ease.
