Hewlett-Packard has cancelled its user conference in New Orleans.
The HP Technology Forum was due to take place on 12-15 September, but that is clearly impossible in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. HP said it was trying to reschedule the conference for some time this autumn. It plans to make an announcement about the location and timing of the event on 9 September.
All hotel bookings made for the event via HP have been cancelled and full refunds will be given. However, attendees who had booked non-refundable flights to the event may have problems getting their money back.
