InfoComm International announced that the inaugural NSCA TechWeek, originally slated for
Oct. 20 - 24, 2008, has been cancelled.

According to InfoComm, TechWeek was designed to be an accessible training event, offering a variety of networking opportunities. InfoComm and NSCA chose to cancel the event because members of both organizations expressed positive interest in the training component of the event, but emphasized the need for more regional training and did not see the need for exhibits since the annual InfoComm trade show presents an exhibition every June.

NSCA and InfoComm plan to work together to determine how regional training can be provided in multiple locations and dates throughout the coming year, rather than at one location. Future events will not include an exhibit component, according to officials.
