"Times are tough in the IT conference business. Last week, the annual IBM i
application development conference known as DevCon said that it is folding
its tent as a result of declining attendance rates in recent years. Less
than a month ago, COMMON Europe pulled the plug on its annual Power Systems
conference. Disappointing pre-event registration totals and the loss of IBM
support were cited as the cause. In April, the COMMON Annual Meeting and
Exposition had its lightest attendance ever. Declining conference attendance
is widespread throughout many industries. It is another sign of the times."
