Flash on the Beach Miami Cancelled

I thought I would post a quick note here since I mention Flash on the Beach often -- it was announced today that Flash on the Beach Miami will be cancelled this year. An email sent out to those who had purchased passes included the following statement:

It is with huge regret that we have taken the decision to cancel FOTB Miami. Our intention was to bring FOTB with its awesome speaker line up, fantastic networking opportunities and of course terrific FOTB vibe to the USA, but low registration numbers have meant that we would not be able to deliver the high calibre event that Flash on the Beach has become well known for.

Looks like even conferences are having problems with the down economy, which in reality, makes sense. I was excited about the conference coming to the States, so I am obviously disappointed to hear the news.

One thing did pick up my spirits a bit, however: John Davey decided to not only refund everyone's registration fees, but also provided a free pass to FOTB Brighton 2009.

Looks like I will be going to Brighton this year, after all!

Around the same time FotB was canceled, I announced Flex Camp Miami which will be held on March 6. It’s obviously not the same thing, but it might interest some people who were considering attending FotB and its only $30. If you are into Flex and AIR then it would be worthwhile checking out. http://www.flexcampmiami.com

Yeah, I usually go to FITC in Toronto almost every year and I just got an email to really push for people to come in and register. I already registered for the workshop but am unable to attend the rest of the conference. I hope things will go well after the 49th parallel.
