Previewing Summer LinuxWorld
Growing With Each Passing Day
July 10, 2003
LinuxWorld in San Francisco is only a month away. You might think that this means everything's set and ready to go, but the closer time comes for the convention and trade show, the more companies register. Small businesses with proportionally small advertising budgets might not sign up until a week before the show. Individuals and businesses who weren't sure their products would be ready in time might even show up at the very last minute to register for a booth.
According to Rob Scheschareg, VP of IDG World Expo and LinuxWorld show Producer, one promising sign is that advanced registrations are coming in once again from startup companies as well as the big guns. He recommends that you check the Web site regularly, and if you don't recognize one of the companies there, click through and take a look. You might find a great, new product or Linux company.
In addition to a constantly growing list of booths at the trade show, the folks behind LinuxWorld have been working hard on making sure to have a strong educational track. Research shows that both people and businesses consider quality education the best use of their time and money, so in a troubled economy it is key to have that type of draw. Rather than generic Linux coverage people could get anywhere, LinuxWorld Expo instead has focused on providing the most up to date information possible, at times focused on specific industries.
