Mashable Media Summit Rescheduled Due to Hurricane Sandy
We have all seen over the past few days that Hurricane Sandy has greatly impacted life along the east coast. Many people are without power and water, some have experienced unthinkable tragedies and all of us are greatly affected by the limited transportation options.
While transportation is slowly being restored, it is in limited capacity and much of the city is still without power.
So, it is with a heavy heart that Mashable has decided to reschedule our annual Media Summit. The event was supposed to be this Friday (November 2), but given the damage from the storm and the limited transportation options getting around New York City, as well as traveling into the New York area, it was not responsible to hold the event this week.
Our priority is for our staff, our community, our speakers and sponsors to be as safe and comfortable as possible.
We are rescheduling the event for November 30 at The TimesCenter when we hope as many of our community can attend as possible.
We apologize to our attendees, speakers and sponsors for the inconvenience and we are grateful that Mashable has a commmunity that has been understanding and supportive of those drastically affected by the storm.
We also are grateful to The New York Times Company and the TimesCenter for their understanding and flexibility during this difficult time.
Our event team is reaching out to attendees to let them know about tickets for November 30 and the options. We hope that everyone can make it then for what will be a successful and inspirational event.
We will have more updates in the days to come about what to expect for November 30.
We hope that everyone in the Mashable Community is safe and sound. Look forward to seeing you November 30 in New York City!
