SAN JOSE, Calif.
Aug 21, 2001

Leaders from all sectors of the software development arena will converge in Boston at the end of the month to share new product and service developments, opinions, and business opportunities. Produced by CMP Media's SD Events Group, SD Web Services World has quickly gained momentum due to a high-level exhibitor base as well as the participation of the industry's top Web services and development strategists.

The five-day event, taking place August 27-31 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, has grabbed the attention of Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Oracle, Rational, Computer Associates and Sun Microsystems, who among others are exhibiting and sponsoring this twice-a-year event. Microsoft Corporation also signed on as a Gold sponsor and will be hosting an exhibitor party on Wednesday evening, August 29. The participation of these premier corporations validates SD Web Services World as the must-attend event in the software development sector. New to the event lineup are Cast Software, Perforce Software, and Symbio Group.

"Even as companies scrutinize which events to attend, companies continue to choose to exhibit and unveil new products and services at SD Web Services World because it is the top conference hub for the software development sector," said Mike Gottlieb, show director for CMP Media's SD Events Group. "Word is quickly spreading about the Boston Expo floor and the fact that it will offer participants a preeminent opportunity to view the industry's most progressive technologies, share knowledge and network."

A sampling of exhibitors presenting new products at the event include:
