Dallas, TEXAS — SC2000, the conference of high performance networking and computing, has nearly sold out exhibitor space in the Dallas Convention Center, making the Nov. 4-10 conference the most successful in its 12-year history.
Total sales of exhibit space in the convention center have reached the $1 million mark and have exceeded the amount of area originally allocated for exhibits. The SC conference consists of several parallel programs – the commercial and research exhibits by the world’s top computer and network vendors, three days of technical presentations, two days of specialized tutorials, and a weeklong education program for teachers from around the country.
“Even by Texas standards, SC2000 is shaping up as one heck of a big conference,” said Louis Turcotte, chairman of this year’s conference. “It’s particularly exciting that so many exhibitors are increasing the size of their exhibits over previous years. Although the field of high performance computing has changed dramatically over the past decade, the response to SC2000 points to a very vibrant future.”
The annual conference typically draws 5,000 of the world’s leaders in creating and using the planet’s most powerful computing and networking tools gather to demonstrate the newest technologies and showcase their results.
