Ingram Micro has cancelled next week’s Christchurch showcase following the events of the weekend. So far, there are no plans to reschedule.

A description of the event on the Ingram Micro Showcase website reads:

“Showcase is your chance to see the latest IT business trends, products and solutions. Leading industry experts will be available for you to ask the hard questions and get the answers you need. So come along and learn how we can help you increase your revenue streams, and build your business.

“More than 50 exhibitors, under one roof in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, in one action-packed day.”

The Christchurch event was due to be held on September 14th, but The Channel has been told this is now cancelled in light of the earthquake.

The event was due to be held at the Christchurch Convention Centre, 95 Kilmore Street.

The Auckland event went ahead today and a Wellington expo is planned for September 10th.

The Channel has contacted Ingram Micro for clarification.
