Supercomm trade show canceled

Supercomm 2010, the communications trade show for broadband service providers and their partners, has been canceled. The event had been planned for Oct. 26-28 in Chicago.

Trade groups USTelecom and the Telecommunications Industry Association said event coordinator Expo Comm didn't have the money to hold the show this fall. The show has been in the shadow of other trade shows, such as the Consumer Electronics Show and CTIA's spring convention for wireless operators. The convergence of the Web with devices, television and wireless technology have made those shows bigger attractions. But even those conventions have been hit by the economic crisis, which has caused some companies to scale back on exhibits and send fewer people.
