Comdex organizers go bankrupt

Such an unpleasant news: Los Angeles Key3Media Group, known as the constitutor of annual Comdex Trade Show, appealed to United States Bankruptcy Court with a traditional for such cases request for bankruptcy protection according to Chapter 11.

According to Key3Media, bankruptcy is just a part of restructuring plan that, if approved, will let Thomas Weisel Capital Partners bank to remain the company owner. According to the plan, this bank possessing Key3Media assets for $372 million will get the main share of interests and will provide further financing.

One of the reason that Comdex became unprofitable on the background of other similar events is their increased number as well as the reduction of PC component importance down to consumer level. Perhaps, sad events of September, 11, played their role in Key3Media bankruptcy as well.

But Key3Media representatives have already declared that exhibitions will take place according to the schedule. Again, except for Las Vegas Comdex Show that takes places annualy in November, Key3Media hosts NetWorld+Interop, JavaOne San Francisco and Seybold Seminars.
