Interop®, owned by CMP Technology, continues to expand its role as the leading global business technology event series by announcing Interop Berlin 2007, taking place at the Fairground Berlin, November 6-8, 2007.

Interop Berlin will focus exclusively on the needs of the European business technology industry, providing an efficient and effective platform for builders, buyers and sellers of IT products and services to meet and do business.

"As the leading global IT event for more than 20 years, Interop has delivered on the goal of helping businesses get the right information to the right people at the right time," said Eric Faurot, Senior Vice President, CMP Technology. "The European IT market is expanding, and as businesses continue to grow, so do their demands of technology. There is no better place for European IT professionals to see the latest business technology advances and learn how they all work together than Interop."

Interop Berlin will include an in-depth educational program covering the spectrum of key topics driving innovation in business technology. Numerous workshops, panels and sessions will provide attendees with face-to-face interaction with industry experts and thought leaders. Interop participants will master current technological challenges, learn how to best optimize their IT investments, and be equipped to make future purchasing decisions.

For over two decades, business leaders and IT professionals have come to Interop to learn about the latest technology innovations and how best to integrate them to provide business value.
