Wausau Area Events Director Kari Rasmussen said the board of directors canceled the event Thursday.
"It was not an easy decision," she said in a statement. "We want to express gratitude to the community and sponsors for embracing the event. Perhaps more importantly, we want to thank our downtown business owners for making the event possible year after year. "
Rasmussen says they will continue to try to find new events for downtown businesses but Exhibitour was a unique event, which she says will be difficult replace.
