Comdex takes a vacation - will anybody notice?

Last fall, I predicted the death of the large, non-focused trade show such as Comdex. But promoter Eric Faurot (vice president of Comdex organizer MediaLive International) urged me to re-think that position. Now its Faurot who's feeding the theory by announcing that Comdex is being cancelled, at least for this year. Although the group has a contract with the Las Vegas Convention Center through 2007, and although Faurot vows that they'll be back, this sounds - to me - like the death knell for the huge, non-focused technology trade show.
