|Communique from The River City Group|
As you know, the Global Interactive Gaming Summit and Expo (GIGSE) was scheduled for May 20-22 in Toronto. Given the situation in Toronto, it became clear that the event would be impossible to implement as originally planned. Therefore, we solicited feedback from you and explored all options.
We have decided to move both the date and location for the GIGSE 2003 event given the responses we received from exhibitors and sponsors, as well as both registered and prospective delegates. It will now be held June 17-19 at the Palais des Congres de Montreal. We ask your indulgence as we sort through the myriad of details which include potential revised conference schedules, revised floor plans for the show, and hotel reservation information. This information will be posted on the GIGSE website as soon as it is available.
We do plan to have the hotel information for our two convention hotels available on the http://www.gigse.com website by Wednesday evening, April 30. We do suggest that you make reservations as soon as possible at the two hotels to guarantee nearby accommodations. We were able to secure hotel rates that are more attractive than those we had in Toronto so that should help with your cost savings.
And, in a good faith effort, River City Group is extending the early bird discount rate for registrations until June 12 when online registration is ended. Any on-site walk-in registration fees will be at the original rates.
Again, we thank you for your patience and understanding in these trying times and we look forward to an exciting and successful event. GIGSE has grown to be THE marketplace and meeting place for the interactive gaming industry and we're committed to providing that forum in 2003 and beyond.
