Some 68 percent of respondents to an online poll from Special Events last week say that recent moves by corporations to cancel incentives and other meetings are PR ploys to avoid the “AIG effect.” Twenty-eight percent say the cancellations are a business decision; 2 percent of respondents say they do not know why the events are being canceled.
Why doesn’t this surprise me? What about you – are you seeing things canceled not because you don’t have the money to do it but because it “looks” better to investors and shareholders?
