O’Reilly Media, Inc. and CMP Technology, the co-producers of the annual Web 2.0 Summit and Expo, recently announced a new conference and trade-show that is aimed at bringing together top leaders and technologists who are building and driving the European Web economy. The Web 2.0 Expo Berlin is scheduled for Nov. 6–8, 2007, and will take place at the Fairground Berlin, Germany.
“Web 2.0 Expo is a global phenomenon. Network effects don’t have national boundaries. But the collective intelligence harvested by the most interesting and innovative Web 2.0 applications often has a local flavor,” said Tim O’Reilly, founder and CEO of O’Reilly Media. “We’re excited to bring together the rapidly growing Web 2.0 business and developer communities in Europe for this new conference.”
Web 2.0 Expo Berlin joins the annual Web 2.0 Summit and Web 2.0 Expo events in San Francisco, which occurred this week. A few days before the event organizers announced that they had received more than 10,000 attendee registrations doubling the number originally expected.
“Web 2.0 is hitting its stride,” O’Reilly said.
