    New Dates for CAMX 2017

    CAMX is confident the expo will be held by the end of 2017; however, confirmed dates are not available. Please keep in mind that we are working as quickly as possible to confirm new dates, but Orlando is currently under a curfew through Monday at 6pm, and many businesses and homes do not have power. We hope to be able to announce dates this week, and will then follow shortly with information on registration for attendees, and next steps for exhibitors on their booth space. Thank you for your patience.

    If you booked your reservation, directly with the hotel, or some other way, please contact the hotel directly to cancel your reservation. you are responsible for cancelling your own hotel reservation.  Please keep in mind that hotel rooms are in short supply in Orlando as many emergency responders and evacuees are in need of rooms, so it is suggested you cancel your room as soon as possible.

  8. UPDATE: September 7, 2017 at 11:30 a.m. EST

    As the organizers of CAMX, we are aware of the threat posed by Hurricane Irma to the state of Florida and Orlando. Our primary concern is for the safety of all our CAMX participants and for our ability to deliver an industry event that is well attended. After our continued review of the hurricane path, notices of airline cancellations, the Orlando Airport providing indications that it will shut down, as well as other challenges, it is unavoidable that unfortunately we must announce that CAMX will not be held next week. We are looking for alternative dates later this Fall. CAMX is a very important show to our industry, and we want to be able to have a successful event for our exhibitors and attendees that is safe and well attended.

    This decision was not made lightly and we are working diligently to resolve arrangements so that we can provide more information, including:

    • Potential new CAMX dates
    • Details about conference registrations and exhibitor bookings
    • Details on your next steps regarding housing reservations

    We understand that there are many other unresolved questions and concerns. We are working to provide you with answers as soon as possible, and will maintain communication via email and also the CAMX website.

    We thank all of you for your concern and your patience while we sort out all the necessary details.
