UK – The British industry service provider, Sourcing City, has cancelled the event Sourcing City Live! that was originally scheduled to place in Farnborough on March 5 and 6, 2014 until further notice. The company is concentrating instead on the successful networking event, Sourcing City Marketplace that it has organised for several years, and which will also be staged in Farnborough on September 23-24.
Sourcing City CEO Alistair Mylchreest commented, “Sourcing City Live! has been postponed to such times as the industry again demands it. While we were delighted with the launch event in January 2013, which exceeded all targets & expectations, we had initially taken a decision to move Sourcing City Live! to March and while sales were steady, with 59 exhibitors already signed up, it was felt there was not universal approval of the March timing, with many key players still undecided whether to exhibit. Instead we have decided to radically upgrade our Marketplace event in September.”
