APEX '07 Cancelled
June 18, 2007 at 7:03 AM (PT)
THE PASSION GROUP announced over the weekend that the APEX ’07 summit has been cancelled due to lack of support.
"I knew that it would be a struggle to have the full event this year simply because of the industry side of the equation," said event organizer RICK WELKE. "With promotion budgets continuing to get slashed, and the lack of funds to attend worthwhile events outside of GMA for radio programmers, it was evident that it just couldn't be a quality event this year.”
In place of APEX ’07, a smaller two-day event for progressive programmers will take place. The APEX IMPOSIUM will be held on the same weekend as the original event, AUGUST 24-25, in a MIDWEST city to be announced.
Organizers do plan to bring the APEX summit back in full force in 2008.
