Numerous business, sports and cultural events were postponed or cancelled nationwide in response to the tragedies. Many were replaced with prayer vigils and other religious services. "Show management put the question of closing to exhibitors. That is, if they wanted to close at the end of Wednesday, or continue on Thursday. They voted to close the show," said Mark Hoske, editor-in-chief, Control Engineering , from Houston.
