While Hurricane Sandy has now come and gone, the effects are still being felt on the east coast. I've had several people ask me in the last two days whether Customer Engagement Technology World (CETW) was still taking place next week. The answer is yes.

JD Events, the show's organizer published the following on its website yesterday:
Customer Engagement Technology World Management would like to reassure everyone that the CETW NY event scheduled for November 7-8, 2012 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York will take place as planned.

We are in close communications with the Javits Center management, and we are confident the Center will be fully operational prior to our event dates.

We are well aware that Hurricane Sandy has disrupted many people’s lives this week, and we wish everyone who has been impacted the quickest possible return to normal in the coming days.

CETW New York is still on target to be the largest gathering place in the world for education, networking, and business solutions focused exclusively on Customer Engagement Technology.

We look forward to seeing you next week and we are excited to host an incredible, must-attend Customer Engagement event in NYC!

We are hearing some positive signs. The NY Stock Exchange and NASDAQ are reopening today, as is JFK and Newark airports. The MTA tweeted that buses "will be almost at normal strength" this morning. The New York City Marathon is still planning to be held Sunday.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those impacted by the storm. We wish everyone in the affected area a speedy recovery. As NYC Mayor Bloomberg said: "Sandy hit us very hard. It was a storm of historic intensity, but New Yorkers are resilient."

Stay safe everyone. We'll see you next week.

I have met many vendors and users, and enjoy the opportunity to share our 'war stories' and use our experiences to help each other with ideas that support successful networks."
