Event to be held in NYC in December By DMN Staff Writer
Due to the recent tragic events in New York City, the Avid World & Pro Tools Conference, which was to begin October 7, has been rescheduled for December 9 to 12, 2001. The event will still be held at its original location, The New Yorker Hotel, and all conference activities, including seminars, speeches, exhibitions and networking functions, remain intact pending further changes.

?We took into account the hundreds of people and companies involved in this event speakers, exhibitors and delegates many of whom are flying in from around the country, says Rick Friedman, president and co-founder of Mindshare Ventures, a co-organizer of the event. ?Its our desire to give them and local participants more time to recoup from the tragedy. Mayor Giuliani and other local government officials have repeatedly stated that the best way Americans can help the city through this calamity is to continue to bring business to town. And to help out weve extended the conferences Early Bird Registration discount to November 2, 2001. Together, we will represent the very best that the video and audio fields have to offer.

The Avid World & Pro Tools Conference is a four-day event that also includes a two-day expo. Targeted toward sound designers and video editors, the conference will include four parallel tracks of 70-plus classes, keynote speeches and networking events designed to offer users all the information and contacts they need to more effectively use and benefit from the full range of Avids tools and technology, including Pro Tools, Media Composer and Symphony.
