“Now there are almost 80 partners altogether, while there were about 60 of them last year. Therefore, we will have a completely redesigned fair area, more keynotes and more rooms for the so-called hosting.SESSIONs”, said Thomas Strohe, the man behind WebhostingDay in an exclusive interview for B10WH web hosting media. WebhostingDay is the largest web hosting event in Europe and “the most important web hosting event in the world”, according to the organizers of the conference.
In the interview you must not miss, Mr. Strohe compares the last year’s WHD with the 2010 event and talk about the differencies between North American and European hosting markets.

Use coupon code 4KQZQY1A to save 349 euros on registration fees for “the most important web hosting event in the world” as the organizers of the Webhosting Day present their 2010 conference and trade show. The WHD traditionally takes place in Phantasialand in Brühl near Cologne. This year the event starts March 17 and ends on March 19th. This year more than 70 leading IT companies from different continents, including Microsoft, Intel, AMD, Fujitsu, HP and Parallels ares sending some of their masterminds to hold technical presentations and displaying their latest products and services at the hosting.FAIR exhibition.
“WebhostingDay is the ideal event for members of the IT or Telecom industry to meet with the leaders of the world’s most important companies in the industry. In 2009 these came from 63 different, mainly European, North American and Asian countries. More than half of the visitors last year were from the CEO/CTO level therefore with a majority of decision makers WebhostingDay has a visitor structure which is certainly not the norm at such industry events”, says the official pressrelease of the show. Form WebhostingDay adds that event’s program offers a varied program of information and interaction.
“On two of the three event days the main.FORUM and hosting.SESSIONs will welcome you to exciting discussions and presentations with successful innovators. The industry exhibition hosting.FAIR runs all day in parallel with the presentations” is the promise made by WHD committee.
WebHostingDay offers excellent opportunities for social networking. One of them is the traditional ConneXion Party. Another opportunity for conference attendees to meet each other and to do business together is the BizBrunch. It is on 19th or Mach.
I have participated to both social events last year and I shall say that they were quite good for me. Although that most of the WHD visitors were departed on the day before the BizBrunch, I met some fine IT professionals during this event. Some of them are today a good friends of mine and I’ll be happy to see them on this year’s WHD.
The ConneXion Party was larger and much more spectacular than the BizBrunch. However I strongly suggest anyone who’s attending to the WebhostingDay to purchase the VIP Pass for the show. The comparison between the standard admission and the VIP Pass can be found on the registration page (http://www.webhostingday.com/eng/visitors-registration.php).
The standard pass includes a comprehensive catering on all days and gives access to all of the essential elements of the WHD, to the event’s program, to the ConneXion-Party, and to the BizBrunch. The VIP pass has been improved for WHD 2010 and offers even more interesting advantages including the networking tool VIPconnect, reserved seats at all presentations, an exclusive VIP party and concierge services.
