Due to circumstances beyond our control we must change the date for our annual charity and awards dinner from Thursday October 5, 2017 to Thursday November 2, 2017. We announced this at a dinner on April 27th for our leading clients and partners. The initial indication was that the change was not a problem for them. We have been in touch with Tom Johnson who is our Man of the Year and Tom Salierno of Global and they have a conflict on Thursday November 2. We are working with Tom Salierno and Tom Johnson to work out a means to present Tom with his award at a dinner in Tampa FL during the month of September, or when most convenient for Tom and his family. We selected November 2 as that is the least likely time to experience any kind of conflict. For those who may be inconvenienced we are truly sorry. We would not do this unless it was absolutely necessary.
Thank you for understanding. This our 32nd annual event and we have never had a conflict prior to this year. I guess we were due. If you are planning an event, we encourage you to look at the last page of The Cannata Report. It is called “On the Road” and Key Confirmed Industry Events Calendar (2017). If you want to know if the date you are planning poses any conflict please look to this page. If an event is not printed in that particular month, contact any of us at The Cannata Report and we will provide you with the information we have. You will find the last On the Road in our 35th Anniversary issue. That will give you some idea of our coverage. We encourage you to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org the dates of your events as soon as you are ready to announce them and CJ will see that it is placed on that page.
Formal invitations for our dinner will be mailed out at the end of August. Please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any questions.
