NetApp cancels user conference over restrictions on corporate travel

NetApp, the Sunnyvale maker of network storage equipment, canceled its upcoming user conference — NetApp Accelerate — scheduled for February “in response to customer feedback about increasing restrictions on corporate travel,” according to a release Monday afternoon.

“We had more customer interest in NetApp Accelerate than we anticipated,” said Elisa  Steele, senior vice president, Corporate Marketing, at NetApp. “But those same customers told us their travel budgets were being cut and it was difficult to commit to attending in today’s climate of economic uncertainty. For those reasons, we decided to cancel this year’s program.”

People who had already registered for the conference to be held at Moscone Center in San Francisco from Feb. 23 to 26 “will receive full refunds of any deposits and/or conference fees they have already paid to NetApp.
