For more than two decades, Interop Las Vegas has been the event that IT and business decision makers trust to get the latest on relevant issues facing the industry. Now, more than ever, Interop Las Vegas is the smart choice for IT buyers looking for a broad set of solutions and dedicated programs on today's most important topics - all in one location: Mobility, cloud computing, green technology and security will be featured in depth at Mobile Business, Enterprise Cloud Summit, Energy Camp and CSI SX, which are collocated events at Interop.

"Innovation in the business technology market offers IT leaders outstanding opportunities to take a leading role in rebuilding the economy," said Lenny Heymann, Interop General Manager. "For over two decades IT buyers have relied on Interop to learn how to take cutting edge solutions, increase revenue and cut costs for their companies. We've made a special effort this year at Interop to highlight technologies and strategies that can produce immediate results."

For the first time, Interop is presenting Enterprise Cloud Summit, a two-day conference for IT managers and business executives to gather information, discover new cloud technologies and meet vendors. Mobile Business Conference and Expo will also be happening simultaneously for a comprehensive look into the demands of the mobile workforce. Attendees of Mobile Business will learn how to put mobile communications and solutions to use within their organization. In addition, the inclusion of CSI SX at Interop offers an expanded, in-depth view into security policy and procedures to provide information needed to protect security and IT professionals' enterprise security.

Demand for Energy Camp brings the program back this year to further the conversation around energy conservation and utilizing Green IT solutions and methods. This one-day "unconference" style gathering will take place on Monday, May 18, 2009. "Research studies show green IT is top of mind for corporations during these times, stressing the importance of Energy Camp in the new year," said David Berlind, Interop's executive conference director and TechWeb blogger. "At Energy Camp, we'll drill down to the truth about what works and what doesn't, discussing solutions for greater energy efficiency."

Each of these distinct events brings great value to Interop's position as the leading business technology event and will provide attendees with the strategies and tools needed to drive business value and cut costs for their organizations. Interop Las Vegas 2009 offers a large and comprehensive IT expo, proudly welcoming more than 400 exhibitors including APC, CA Inc., Cisco, Dell, HP, Microsoft, Motorola, Nortel, Verizon and VMware.
