Web 2.0 Expo Receives Support from Industry's Leading Vendors

SAN FRANCISCO -- CMP Technology and O'Reilly Media, producers of Web 2.0 Expo, today announced the exhibitors that will make up the Expo Hall, indicating strong industry support for the upcoming event. Web 2.0 Expo will feature the most relevant internet industry figures and focuses on the cutting edge applications which make up Web 2.0. Web 2.0 Expo is the first broad-based conference and tradeshow for the rapidly growing ranks of designers, developers, product managers, entrepreneurs, VCs, marketers and business strategists who are embracing the opportunities created by Web 2.0. Web 2.0 Expo will take place April 15-18, 2007 at the Moscone West Convention Center in San Francisco. Registration is now open at www.web2expo.com.

Web 2.0 Expo will play host to the most innovative and successful internet industry pioneers who will share the business models, development paradigms, and design strategies to enable mainstream businesses and new arrivals to the Web 2.0 world to take advantage of this new generation of services and opportunities. The overwhelming demand present during the sold out Web 2.0 Conference (recently renamed Web 2.0 Summit), inspired the creation of Web 2.0 Expo. Web 2.0 Expo expands on the success of the conference, and will be the center of gravity for this influential community.

The innovation and creativity of Web 2.0 is driving investment, growth and opportunity at start-ups and Fortune 500 companies alike. Web 2.0 Expo sponsors include the most important vendors in the internet industry.
