    Looks like I might be able to go on June 8. Might be fun to meet up for a drink afterwards, or before :)

    Pretty huge event to cancel.. I nearly bought plane tickets in December but decided against it in the end. Really glad I didn't, would of been devastating to have laid out so much for a big show and have it cancelled only a month out!

    Fuck. I did buy plane tickets, but it’s a vacation for my and the wife anyways. I was just going to spend one day there. We are spending a few days at the Harrah’s Southern California resort, and then a few days in San Diego. It’s amazing the ineptitude to cancel a show less than a month before the show.

    I saw that too, but wasn’t going to dive into that. It rubbed me the wrong way too.

    Reading that Facebook letter, what I understood was: "I'm an irresponsible person who's full of legal and financial problems, let's throw God, a cheesy blog and a couple of sad stories to make it up a bit."

    Anyway, what a shame...both atendees and manufacturers/dealers deserve a better organized show.

    Looks like her personal site might have malware.

    Our filters let it though, and we have some intense filters. My guess is that the site doesn't meet some validation criteria for Cisco filters, so it's being blocked. The site is all about how she found god. Ug.

    It appears she was the the driving force behind the show, and she got overwhelmed.

    T.H.E. Show 2016 happens through everyone coming together and trying to make it a success after Richard passed away earlier that year unexpectedly. The next year Marine and Maurice the individuals that made the previous year work end up going different ways. Marine doing LA Audio Show and Maurice getting T.H.E. Show.

    LA Audio Show happens last year in June at the same time slot but different venue as the previous T.H.E. Show of yesteryear. Was alrightish, was billed to be the replacement from T.H.E. Show but had a drop in attendance along with moving location from OC to next to LAX. T.H.E. Show with Maurice later that year doesn't even happen.

    Flash forward to this year, LA Audio Show in mid June now and T.H.E. Show somehow in early June. Just looking at the exhibitors list before LA Audio Show, looked like a scale down from the previous years list with even them deciding to cut headphones. T.H.E. Show I couldn't even find the exhibitor list on their site a month away from the show. And then last night Marine admits splitting the show and what not was a mistake and she couldn't do this anymore.

    What a mess.

    Shows are a hell of a thing to run. Ask Denise. She's done more than a few--including some really epic 9-day trade shows on the manufacturing side of things.

    That said:

    For the love of whatever force you consider holy, or just for the sake of sheer sanity, DON'T schedule two audio shows right on top of each other! One week (or two weeks, three weeks)...that's completely insane. Move the friggin show so exhibitors and attendees don't go bonkers—and so you don't end up having zero shows, because neither of your shows met the minimum number of exhibitors to make it viable.

    Thank you for letting me vent.
