Seems to be a bit of this going on - the Southwest Video Game Expo, in Dallas, is being postponed:

Dallas - May 1, 2009 - The Southwest Video Game Expo (SWGE) today announced it would be postponed due economic reasons. The show was to be the largest event of its kind in the Southwest showcasing new games for the holiday season from all the major publishers. This expo was to be held at the Dallas Convention Center from November 20-22, 2009. However with recent events forcing publishers to limit their budgets the management reconsidered SWGE's ability to put on the kind of show people would be excited to attend. Li-Fi, the consumer electronic side of SWGE was cancelled previously.

"The management deeply regrets that the expo in Texas will not be happening in 2009 as we had planned," said Don Jennings, President of Li-Fi, Inc. "A poor economy mixed with a large number of other expos for publishers to attend has meant our show didn't perform the way we had hoped it would. We still hope someday to bring a large event like this to the Southwest, and are determined that it will be worth the wait."
