The NACS has issued a statement regarding the NACS 2005, which was scheduled to be held in New Orleans this October:
“We are very sensitive to providing full, complete and timely information regarding the status of the NACS Show 2005. Out of respect for the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau and the people of New Orleans, we are honoring their request to allow them adequate time to assess the situation and determine their ability to host the NACS Show as currently scheduled. As widely reported in the news media, the city’s infrastructure and communication systems are severely impaired making prompt assessments extremely difficult. We ask your patience in awaiting definitive information.”
“While we await their final assessment, we have been actively engaged in researching viable options in the event that New Orleans is not capable of hosting the NACS Show this year. We hope to have a complete assessment available and definitive plans in place by the end of next week and will, in the interim, continue to provide updates as more information becomes available.”
