Baltimore Riots Cancel Access Tradeshow

The ongoing riots in Baltimore have forced the Door and Hardware Institute to cancel the group's biggest convention tradeshow of the year, originally scheduled from April 29th - May 1st:

While not an inconvenience to many (at least on the scale of ISC West or ASIS), this has been a big show for the door/door hardware market in the past. It's easy to imagine that a fairly sizable amount of money has been lost as a result.

Do you think this is a panicked, or justified move for DHI?
