One of the key things for us at ITEXPO is the diversity of the audience. It's not just a reseller show, it's not just a service provider show, it's not just an enterprise show. We have an opportunity to meet with a very diverse goup and its also a good place to run into the mid-market.

The event is very representative of modern day technology and the new state of the art. It's the people introducing the new things. It reminds me very much of the shows where we introduced the original Apple 2 computer. In those days, the computer shows were a little less professional but we'd go there and you'd see all the products from the different companies. You'd see the all components they're made from, you'd see applications, you'd see software, you'd see the people selling computers. It was a great fun thing and that's what you see here."
We have the opportunities to see all the important people in the industry. Whether it's on the analyst and press side or the customer side on the exhibit hall floor. We see everybody at these events.
