JUPITERMEDIA ANNOUNCES COMPUTER DIGITAL EXPO FOR NOVEMBER 17-20, 2003 AT MANDALAY BAY CONVENTION CENTER IN LAS VEGAS AS THE NEXT GENERATION COMDEX(New York, NY - February 4, 2003) - Jupitermedia Corporation (Nasdaq: JUPM) today announced that Computer Digital Expo Fall 2003, America's 21st Century Information Technology Conference & Expo, will run in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 17-20. The event will consist of four days of exhibits and five days of seminars at the new 1.8 million square foot Mandalay Bay Convention Center and hotel campus.
"The computer and IT industries require a dynamic exhibition and conference that covers the expansion of technology from computers to the numerous digital devices that are driving today's information technologies, and that is assured of being in place this November," stated Alan M. Meckler, Chairman and CEO of Jupitermedia Corporation and the creator of Internet World. "The owner of Comdex, Key3Media, Inc., has filed under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy code. In view of the uncertainty that this creates for Comdex, we are launching Computer Digital Expo to meet the industries' needs for such an event. Jupitermedia, with its strong editorial and trade show presence in the computing and IT arenas, is the perfect choice to provide the community that once attended Comdex with a high-level trade show and conference. We have 20 million business and technology professionals reading our editorial offerings every month on our internet.com and EarthWeb.com Network and thousands know us for our leading conferences and trade shows throughout the U.S. and the world. To make the transition as seamless as possible for the business and technology professionals who traditionally block out these dates in November, we're running our event during the same week that Comdex ran. In addition to running every fall in Las Vegas, Computer Digital Expo will run every spring in Boston," said Meckler.
Computer Digital Expo is the next generation technology event encompassing computers, portable devices, hosted services, pervasive access and the rapid changes they are undergoing. While the growth of the computer and IT marketplace has been stunted by a lack of new and compelling applications, new digital technologies and initiatives will evolve the role of the computer and simultaneously help create the next wave of indispensable technology. Computer Digital Expo offers insight as to how, when and where users will be able to exploit this next wave and how vendors can keep a close eye on the forces driving user adoption in order to capitalize on these emerging trends.
