The Graphic Users Association (GUA) Board of Directors announces that the North American GUA 2011 conference is postponed due to concerns about potential flooding in the host city of New Orleans. The conference, which had been slated for the week of June 6, has been rescheduled to the week of January 16, 2012, in New Orleans.

“Over the past week, I and other board members have heard from many registered attendees and people who had  planned to attend the GUA Conference about their concerns regarding the potential for flooding in New Orleans,”  says GUA president Tom Clifford. “The feedback indicated that people who had registered were considering not  coming and those who otherwise would have registered had decided not to attend. The potential disruption to their business that travel delays or other weather-related incidents might cause were considered too much of a risk.”

In place of the conference, GUA sessions will now take place in conjunction with Graph Expo in Chicago,  September 11-14, 2011 and a series of educational webinars will be held throughout 2011.

Current registered customers will be contacted with details about refunds or payment deferrals for the rescheduled conference in January. For more information, see http://www.gua2011.com/.
