The terrorist attacks that struck New York and Washington earlier this month have resulted in the cancellation or rescheduling of several industry conferences.

The Investment Company Institute canceled its Tax & Accounting conference scheduled for Sept. 23-26 at Walt Disney World, its Operations conference scheduled for Nov. 4-7 in Orlando, Fla., and its Small Funds conference scheduled for Oct. 10-12 in Key Biscayne, Fla., because of the attacks, according to an ICI spokeswoman. The ICI conference division decided to cancel the events because many of the attendees would have a hard time getting to the conferences or are apprehensive about traveling, she said.
