IDC's 12th Annual European IT Forum

16. September 2002

IDC will hold its 12th annual European IT Forum at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. The two-day event focuses on how companies can prepare now for the eventual IT market rebound. This year's forum will draw several top-level U.S. and international executives and experts from the technology and telecommunications industries to talk about new economic landscapes, technology solutions and strategies for IT investments. IDC predicts a gradual, uneven rebound from the second half of 2002 despite the challenging business conditions that have persisted. The bottom of the slowdown has clearly been left behind and IDC sees clear indications for a return to previous growth levels in many market sectors by 2003. IDC's European IT Forum provides prescriptive advice to executives responsible for preparing their businesses for this turnaround. Key focus areas include: New user buying behavior Channel requirements and vendor success factors and offerings A sharpening of technology and architectural changes in everything from servers and storage to telecom infrastructures, IT services, software and ebusiness. The following keynote speakers are scheduled to present at this year's European IT forum: Lester Thurow, Professor of Management and Economics, Sloan School of Management, MIT Nicholas Negroponte, Founder and Director, MIT's Media Lab Michael Earl, Dean, Templeton College, University of Oxford Don Tapscott, Author of "Digital Capital" and Co-Founder of Digital 4Sight Patrick McGovern, Founder and Chairman, IDG The event will be based around plenary sessions focusing on strategic themes, as well as parallel sessions which will concentrate on key business opportunities driving the IT market rebound. This forum will also see the return of the Research Pavilion - where attendees will be able to network with IDC analysts - and the introduction of the Guru Labs - interactive workshops where a limited number of participants will be able to brainstorm on critical issues with the keynote speakers.
