COMDEX IN COMA; CALLS '05 COMEBACK

Born in 1979, Comdex lived a long and prosperous life in Las Vegas, and died shortly after 2003.

Or did it?

Thousands of techies will weep with withdrawals when November comes, because Comdex -- the tech world's annual superconfab -- will not be happening in 2004. The people running it plan to retool the tradeshow and return in 2005. Comdex, which used to be Sin City's signature convention, got up to over 220k attendees back in the bubble-boom of '98, but its numbers were crunched the past few years, and totalled a "mere" 51,000 (still sounds huge to me) in 2003.

Comdex's current owner, MediaLive, said it is going to resurrect the show in November next year. What happens in Vegas, returns to Vegas. Or so we hope.
