Jun 27, 2001 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 1 views

Framingham, MA — (press release excerpt) — IDG World Expo announced today that it expects to see attendance records shattered at the upcoming LinuxWorld Conference & Expo. With registration soaring for the event, LinuxWorld is expected to attract more than 20,000 attendees. LinuxWorld will be held for the first time at San Francisco's Moscone Center and the San Francisco Marriott, venues better able to… accommodate its growing popularity, August 26 – 30, 2001.

With nine weeks remaining until the event, LinuxWorld has seen the number of pre-registered exhibits-only attendees double compared last year's West Coast event. Conference registration is also up, with 57% more conference attendees registered so far this year.

More than one-third of the pre-registered conference attendees have selected passes that allow them entrance to the first ever Worldwide Developer Conference at LinuxWorld. The Worldwide Developer Conference will focus specifically on the needs of application and technical developers, providing the open source community with the opportunity to participate in technical training and educational forums on application design and development.

LinuxWorld Conference & Expo will also return to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City January 29 – February 1, 2002.
