Mediterranean Maritime 2007 event cancelled Published:  27 July, 2007

THE organisers of the Mediterranean Maritime 2007 event, scheduled to be held in Marseille from October 24-26, today announced that it has been cancelled due to insufficient stand sales.

“Unfortunately, while many of the larger, regular exhibitors at other Baird events and a number of new French exhibitors had confirmed their participation, too few other companies have been able to confirm bookings,” said Baird Publications Chairman, Neil Baird.

“This left us with an event that would have been too small to provide sufficient interest to visitors who would have had to travel, in many cases, long distances to attend. We are not prepared to proceed with any event that does not offer good value for both visitors and exhibitors. “We very much regret any inconvenience caused but remind exhibitors and visitors alike that our other events planned for the next twelve months in Hong Kong, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur are selling extremely well and will provide considerable interest to those who take the trouble to attend them,” Mr Baird concluded.
