  26. images/bullet2.gifGovernment Technology Conference - Events

Some changes have occurred since the events of 9/11/01 and we have made changes accordingly. God Bless America!

We will add Vendor Presentation Events to our List as they occur. Expect additions in the Spring of 2003 from both AMD & Intel. Expect OEM System Vendors Builder Events to be mentioned in the near future since those avenues of profit are more highly sought after than in the past.

Vendors - If you have additions to include in our list, please let us know and state whether Public Invited or Private - To the Press Only! Contact us:


Must Attend Events for IT Professionals!

So many Trade Shows and so little time. What's an Information Technology Specialist to do? Pick and choose. If only 2 will do, in the past, we recommended Fall Comdex (product announcements), now CES, NAB & PC Expo (TechXNY, Technology Announcements). And remember Cebit America in 2003 -  Branch out from there. These are only relevant if you have need for the topics covered.

For our BuildOrBuy Readers - Please let us know if you have a favorite 'Trade Show' to Add to our Current List of Trade Show Conferences & Events! Gill Boyd
