This year's Comdex, one of the biggest tech tradeshows in the world was cancelled for the second time in a row now.

Comdex 2005 was cancelled despite the efforts of its owner MediaLive International Inc. to take the conference out of limbo. The tradeshow, which is traditionally held in Las Vegas, Nev., in November, was cancelled last year for the first time after 25 years.

"Through our continued discourse across the community of IT buyers, vendors and other stakeholders, we've made significant progress," the San Francisco-based company said. "However, considerable work remains to build an industry event to serve the industry as it matures with the same success that Comdex did in its infancy."
In its best days Comdex, which was first held in 1979, saw over 200,000 visitors.
