The Motivation Show, planned for May 2014 in Chicago, has been canceled. Hall-Erickson, which managed The Motivation Show, said, "Alternative venues and event models for future shows may be explored; however, there are no plans to discuss [that] at this time."
The organization also announced that the proposed Motivation Show Las Vegas will be merged into the PPAI brand Expo, scheduled to take place in Las Vegas in January 2014. PPAI will handle all exhibit inquiries and logistics for the combined show. Hall-Erickson further said that The Motivation Show plans to be involved with PPAI in the education and attendance promotion program to attract end-users to PPAI brand 2014.
