For those of you who attended the ITEXPO and related events last year in Miami, you remember it was a very strong show with great attendance. The conference usually draws from all over the world – especially Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, the Central and Eastern US and of course Canada.
The even better news about this upcoming event Feb 2-4, 2011 at the Miami Beach Convention center is the numbers are trending much better than last year. My marketing team just sent over the comparable stats and here they are:
- Overall attendance up 52% over same time last year
- Paid conference attendance up 54% over same time last year
- Loews hotel block up 31% over last year
The event has certainly grown and there are currently 13 collocated events as follows. We believe there is no finer or more complete place to learn about the important technologies which will enhance your career and bottom line.
I hope to see you there and thanks to all my readers who have decided to register and/or sponsor attend the event.
