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.”
