COMDEX has been given new life as a virtual event. Once known as the largest and most influential IT channel trade show in the computer and technology industry, the Computer Dealers Exhibition is set to re-launch Nov. 16-17, 2010 as COMDEXvirtual.
Produced by Everything Channel, a United Business Media company, in partnership with UBM Studios, the event is expected to attract more than 11,000 attendees and 27 exhibiting companies, according to show officials.
Much like the famous Las Vegas-based trade show that began in 1979 and folded in 2003, COMDEXvirtual is designed to provide meaningful and relevant content, collaboration and engagement for global IT technology suppliers and solution providers, said Robert Faletra, CEO of Everything Channel.
