Chicago -- "The President of the United States, Bill Clinton, will address COMDEX/Spring 2000 in a speech on April 18. COMDEX/Spring is a critical stop on the President's groundbreaking Digital Divide tour, as it represents an unparalleled opportunity for the President to speak and meet with influential members of the information technology (IT) community who hold the key to closing the Digital Divide.
More than 80,000 IT professionals, including industry media and moguls, will be in attendance at COMDEX/Spring, April 17-20, 2000 at McCormick Place in Chicago. This announcement marks the first time a U.S. President has appeared at an IT industry forum of this magnitude.
"I will speak at the influential COMDEX Conference in Chicago, where I'll talk to representatives of every major computer and Internet company in America, and ask them to join our cause," President Clinton said at the Digital Divide kick-off Tuesday afternoon at the White House.
"COMDEX has always been the meeting place for the computer industry and the resulting new technologies," said Fredric D. Rosen, Chairman of ZD Events. "Now, in this new millennium, COMDEX has evolved to become the meeting place for the "new e-conomy." We are honored that President Clinton has chosen our first major event of the year to share his vision for closing the Digital Divide."
