JAX Expo 2017 - Postponed
« on: January 17, 2017, 02:18:34 PM »
Sorry for the slow response to all of the questions about JAX 2017.  For this year we were looking at a much bigger venue and signed a contract for the first weekend of March at a new location with more than 5 times as much space as our previous events.  Unfortunately, because of a variety of issues we have decided to postpone the show.  We are still looking at making it happen sometime in the future but we don’t have a timeline as of right now. 

We do want to thank everyone for their continued support and understanding and we will post updates as we know more.   
 
Best,
Doug & Steve

I can't imagine all the time and work it takes to put on one of these shows and do it right.  You and Steve with help from others have done an amazing job.  Your show will be missed by many but it is certainly understandable why it is being postponed.

Planning a show is a massive investment so best to wait a bit then rush into something that may be problematic.

I've enjoyed the shows you've done thus far and i'm sure when you do the next one it will be equally awesome.. can't wait!
