Additionally, Attachmate will exhibit solutions from its Emulation Services Division, Restructuring Services Division and Connector Services Division, while Exact Software will display its business process management products and enterprise resource planning solutions. "Technology companies are increasingly turning to smaller, more focused industry events that allow them to target and interact with a select audience of senior executives who are directly in charge of IT purchasing decisions," said Mark Dineen, Managing Director, CeBIT America. "Our goal is to create a comprehensive trade show and conference program geared specially at the needs of senior enterprise and IT professionals, and we are dedicated to bringing together the best line up of industry players that serve the growing complex technical needs of the vertical enterprise markets." Integral to CeBIT America's exhibitor program are also its group pavilions that provide dedicated venues for specific industry and product categories. Among the pavilions featured at this year's CeBIT America are three Exchange Pavilions -- Storage Area Network (SAN) Exchange, Security Exchange, and Wireless Exchange -- as well the future parc Pavilion, focused on advances in R&D, and over twenty international country pavilions. The Exchange Pavilions will be sponsored in part by Computerworld magazine. CeBIT America will bring together over 400 exhibitors and 35,000 senior decision-makers from technology and vertical industries, including the automotive, banking, education, government, healthcare, hospitality, insurance & finance, manufacturing, media & publishing, and retail sectors. Partnering with leading business and government organizations, CeBIT America will offer exclusive business and educational opportunities for exhibitors and attendees, including a comprehensive conference program co-developed by CNET Networks as well as the Business Council for the United Nations' 2003 'Bridging the Global Digital Divide Conference.' To provide its exhibitors with an accurate tool for evaluating their return on investment, CeBIT America has also arranged for its attendance data to be verified by Exhibit Surveys' Attendance Certification Service.
