VSLive! and TechMentor Conferences to Co-locate in 2008
Bringing Microsoft Developers and Network Administrators Together
San Mateo, Calif., Dec. 3, 2007 -- 1105 Redmond Media Group Events announced plans today to co-locate its VSLive! and TechMentor conferences in 2008; including the events on March 30-April 3, 2008 at the Moscone Convention Center West in San Francisco, California; and on May 19-23, 2008 at the Royal Pacific Resort in Orlando, Florida.
Co-locating VSLive!, the leading event for developers who work with the Visual Studio.NET tool suite, with TechMentor, the top network training conference for Windows professionals significantly expands learning and networking opportunities for executives, managers, developers, IT directors and project managers, and others interested in hands-on, how-to technical information for developing and administering on the Microsoft platform.
“Our conferences provide essential technical information for IT and development professionals creating and administering the next generation of Microsoft applications,” said Tim Smith, vice president of 1105 Redmond Media Group Events. “Having TechMentor and VSLive! co-located at one event will give the thousands of professionals attending the conference an opportunity to learn more about current and future aspects of their job, as well as give exhibitors the opportunity to reach an expanded audience of technology decision makers.”
“Co-locating two strong events together will greatly expand the learning opportunities available for VSLive! and TechMentor conference attendees. We find that many developers and IT pros must be proficient across all aspects of IT,” says Group President Henry Allain. “By expanding the content and scope of the event we will be able to appeal to a significantly larger audience and deliver more comprehensive content under one roof.”
VSLive! and TechMentor San Francisco, March 30 – April 3, 2008 and Orlando, May 18-22, 2008 are both a five-day conference and exhibition.
VSLive! reigns as the foremost conference and trade show for developers building applications with Microsoft.NET. VSLive! delivers smart, pragmatic content, best of breed exhibitors and speakers with the authority and experience to show sophisticated corporate IT professionals how to extend their development for universal impact. There is no other event that provides the quality, quantity, and depth of coverage that you’ll find at VSLive!
