IDG's InfoWorld Launches Virtualization for Government Executive Forum
InfoWorld, the leading integrated media brand for IT solutions management, today announced Virtualization for Government Executive Forum, a one-day conference for senior technology decision-makers. InfoWorlds first vertically focused virtualization event takes place on Tuesday, April 24th at the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. The event focuses on the themes introduced at recent Virtualization Executive Forum events in New York and San Francisco, with an emphasis on strategies relevant for government organizations evaluating and implementing virtualization and IT consolidation initiatives. Virtualization can dramatically reduce redundancy and costs for agencies, while at the same time allowing better access to information and increased utility of systems and networks. Cost to attend InfoWorlds Virtualization for Government Executive Forum is $235. Members of the press using promotional code press_virtgov are eligible for complimentary registration. Additional information is available at:

"Enterprise virtualization presents a tremendous opportunity for government organizations to maximize the value of their technology investments, and for vendors to provide vital information on how to build, deploy, and evaluate all components of the virtualized infrastructure," said Steve Fox, InfoWorlds editor-in-chief. Virtualization for Government Executive Forum underscores InfoWorlds leading advocacy of enterprise virtualization by providing information on the topic to an industry with specific needs not typically addressed at a broad-based event."

Virtualization for Government Executive Forum is one of several ways that InfoWorld shows decision makers focused on IT solutions management how the right technologies in the context of a virtualization strategy can produce direct business impact for their organizations. InfoWorld covers virtualization daily via, weekly through the print edition of InfoWorld, and face-to-face through the successful Virtualization Executive Forum series. As a result, InfoWorld takes these buyers through all stages of the purchase process, from first helping determine need to the evaluation/selection process and ultimate purchase.

"Virtualization presents significant advantages for government organizations looking to better manage and scale their IT resources," said Jill Martay, InfoWorlds Vice President of Events. "InfoWorlds Virtualization for Government Executive Forum promises to show how virtualization addresses the organizational and technology challenges faced by government organizations."
