Web 2.0 Expo happens March 28-31, 2011 at Moscone West in San Francisco, CA. Now in its fifth year, Web 2.0 Expo is for all of those individuals and companies that are building the truly next-generation web: designers, developers, entrepreneurs, marketers, and business strategists. The conference and expo will feature not only innovations and inspirations but also practical ideas that smart companies can use to succeed today. Does this mean if you are not a “Technologist” you will not be successful at Web 2.0?  Absolutely NOT! Web 2.0 is not just for developers, web creators and those in technology, but really for almost anyone who is doing business in the world today. Restaurants and Hotels with specialized reservation systems both online and at their facilities. Entertainment and Music industry professionals can benefit. Hospitality, Motion Picture, Food & Beverage and Event professionals of all types. Business owners with websites and solutions that move them into and onto different platforms that may not be usual for them, but are necessary for their growth and competitive advantage all need to attend Web 2.0.

Web 2.0 Expo, co-produced by O’Reilly Media, Inc. and UBM TechWeb, showcases the latest Web 2.0 business models, development paradigms, products, and design strategies for the  next-generation Web. This annual multi-track conference brings together people, ideas, connections, contacts, products, and companies to foster stronger Web 2.0 communities. Web 2.0 Expo events occur in San Francisco and New York and feature influential keynotes and speakers, detailed workshops, a Startup Showcase, an Expo show floor, and rich networking events.

The Web continues to be an engine of economic growth, fueled by a host of new business models, development models, and design patterns that collectively fall under the umbrella of Web 2.0, a term coined at the birth of Web 2.0 Summit, a joint venture between O’Reilly Media and UBM TechWeb.

To meet the increasing demand for Web 2.0 comprehension and skills, and to build a broader Web 2.0 community, O’Reilly Media and UBM TechWeb launched the inaugural Web 2.0 Expo in April 2007 in San Francisco. Web 2.0 Expo, a companion event to Web 2.0 Summit, was the first conference and tradeshow for the rapidly growing ranks of designers and developers, product managers, entrepreneurs, VCs, marketers, and business strategists who are embracing the opportunities created by Web 2.0 technologies. Web 2.0 Expo has now expanded to include not only the Web 2.0 Expo San Francisco, but also New York.
