(July 9, 2003) - UK LinuxWorld 2003 has been cancelled. Due to have taken place on 3 - 4 September at Birmingham's National Exhibition Center, the inuagural LinuxWorld Conference and Expo UK will now take place, its organizers hope, next year instead.
The show's organizers, IDG World Expo, snagged sponsorship from the usual Linux suspects like Oracle, Computer Associates, and SuSE. But the UK Linux market is also served by a pre-existing event, Linux Expo UK 2003 - held every year at Olympia in October and already into its fifth successful year.
Furthermore the NEC itself has also already staged a Linux show this year: Linux & Developer Expo was held in June.
Undaunted, IDG World Expo says it expects to reschedule the event when it tries again in 2004...maybe to a different part of the year.
LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in San Francisco's Moscone Center, 4 - 7 August, is unaffected.
