  1. I agree with Jim. IF the force majeure clause contract between IPMS and the venue does not include broad language allowing IPMS to cancel without penalty in the event that circumstances APPEAR that attendance will be way down, the IPMS leadership is obligated to let this ride in hopes that a government agency imposes a restriction that gives them an escape without penalty.

  11. The IPMS website says that the vendor tables are 8 feet by 24 inches, whilst another vendor has told me that they are actually 30 inches wide. Can anyone confirm the actual dimensions? Any help appreciated. Sincerely, David Doyle
