ITEXPO West 2008 attendance for the upcoming Los Angeles, California event to be held September 16-18 is looking great and I just can’t wait for the show to start. We are brimming with enthusiasm about this year’s event and it will truly be the World’s Communications Conference. Perhaps the most exciting thing about this year’s show is the record number of companies making news at the show. We are absolutely thrilled about this and are doing our best to help you absorb all the news emanating from the show in an easily digestible format. To that end, we have started producing show dailies which detail news from the exhibiting community.
