Huerth, Germany – (The Hosting News) – February 6, 2009 – For the fifth time, WebhostingDay will be held, on March 18th-20th, 2009 at Phantasialand near Cologne, Germany. The three-day event is the largest web hosting event in Europe, and continues to increase yearly.
One important reason for this development is the number of partner companies contributing to WebhostingDay, both as exhibitors and presenting talks, while there were about 40 in the previous year, in 2009 there are more than 50. Amongst those contributing are such well-known companies as Microsoft, Intel, AMD, Parallels, interxion, HP and Fujitsu Siemens Computers. This is a clear signal of the great support the event has received within the hosting industry.
The current status of visitor registrations indicates that there will be a new record for attendance as well. More than 500 attendants were registered within the first three days after the online registration had gone live. Based on previous experience, over 1,200 visitors can be expected.
Thomas Strohe, Director of Intergenia AG and WebhostingDay organizer explained, ”The response is really quite overwhelming and once again demonstrates that we entirely meet the hosting industry’s demand for a networking and innovation forum taking place in Europe. The fact that visitors from all over the world register, and that the majority of them come from the CEO/CTO level, accounts for the event’s high significance.”
Top-class senior management experts from the most important hosting and telecommunication companies will, again in 2009, be engaged as speakers for main.FORUM, which takes place on two of the mornings.
