Web Services Focus of the Conference
SYS-CON's Web Services Edge 2001 East event took place on September 23-26 in New York City and attracted more than 2,700 i-technology professionals from around the world, making it the most significant Web Services event of the year.
"More than 4,000 delegates registered to attend our East Coast conference that took place this September in New York City," said Fuat Kircaali, founder and CEO of SYS-CON Media. "The number of delegates who actually participated at our East Coast conference was impressive in the aftermath of the despicable attacks of September 11."
"Our exhibitors, sponsors, and participating companies will be given a chance to reach all our 4,200 registered delegates and will be able to share the technologies they introduced and demonstrated at our New York Conference," said Grisha Davida, vice president of business development at SYS-CON Media. "This week in Santa Clara, we will facilitate a similar global communication between our delegates, readers, exhibitors, and participating companies at our West Coast conference (www.sys-con.com/jdjedge/tv.cfm)."
