(London) IT Europa announced today that it will be staging the Third Annual European ISV Convention from 13 – 14 May 2009 in Prague. The event will bring together leading Independent Software Vendors with Hardware, Software and Service organizations to explore and address the issues impacting the development of the IT Industry in Europe and to develop and strengthen partnerships aimed at supporting solution-based sales.
The third annual European ISV Convention has been designed to build upon the success of the first two conventions, which were staged in Brussels and Frankfurt in February 2007 and 2008 respectively, and is expected to attract leading ISVs from all over Europe. The convention will feature a high-level conference programme with leading industry speakers on topics that include the challenges and opportunities for ISVs in Europe, the future of application development and delivery, new business models, strategies for growth, collaboration and cooperation.
As the economic climate becomes more difficult and pressures on budgets intensify, applications and the business value that they generate become increasingly important in driving growth in both the IT and Telecoms sectors, said Alan Norman, Managing Director of IT Europa. The European ISV Convention 2009 provides a unique opportunity for Europe’s ISV community to come together to address the issues affecting the development of the software applications market. It also provides a framework within which major hardware and software vendors as well as service providers and system integrators can meet and engage with the directors and decision makers of Europe’s most significant ISVs and Solution Providers to create business opportunities.
The European ISV Convention 2009 will take place at the Intercontinental Hotel, Prague from 13 – 14 May 2009. ISVs wishing to attend the convention and vendors or service providers interested in sponsorship opportunities can find further information at www.isvconvention.com. ISV participation is by invitation and is free of charge to qualifying delegates.
