club world awards ceremony cancelled

The annual Club World Awards in Miami -- Club World magazine's celebration of top venues, DJs and sound systems -- canceled its ceremony during this year's Winter Music Conference, citing the bad economy. Instead of holding the soiree a "prize patrol" will seek out winners at various events during the week (March 24-28) and give them their prizes.

"It's a situation we know that others are in as well," says the event's producer, journalist Karri Mason. "We just don’t have the resources to support our usual shindig. And there’s nothing worse than a half-ass party ... Don’t worry. Just like the stock market, we’ll be back."
