Calvin Ayre Cancels Bodog Conference
19 July 2006
Email from Calvin Ayre:
The Bodog.com Marketing Conference presents a wonderful opportunity for good discussion about marketing, customer service and about the growth of our industry; however, in the last few days, many of you who planned to attend the conference have expressed a high level of concern over the uncertainty surrounding the U.S. government’s recent actions against one of the companies in our industry. It is in light of these concerns that we have decided to postpone the Bodog.com Marketing Conference to a later date and at an international location. This decision ensures that the focus of the conference will not be lost.
The scheduled Party, however, will go on as planned at Tao at the Venetian on Tuesday, July 25th at 9 p.m. If you plan on attending the party, please RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each of you will be fully refunded for your conference registration and sponsorship fees, and we will be in contact with you shortly about this postponement. If you need to reach us immediately about your reservations at the Wynn, call us toll-free at 1-866-591-0217. If you are an affiliate or an advertiser, please contact your local account manager.
I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you, but in spite of what has happened of late we chose to act with your best interests in mind. I assure you that we will make it up to you with a bigger and better conference to be announced in the near future.
Bodog.com will carry on our business as usual and will continue to lead the way in digital entertainment.
-Calvin Ayre, Founder and CEO of Bodog.com
