General Sponsorship Information

The innovation and creativity of Web 2.0 is driving investment, growth and opportunity at start-ups and Fortune 500 companies alike. Today, all functions of business are driving purchase decisions, from developers and designers to the business strategists applying Web 2.0 to their work. Web 2.0 Expo is the first broad-based conference and tradeshow for the rapidly growing ranks of designers, developers, product managers, entrepreneurs, VCs, marketers and business strategists who are embracing the opportunities created by Web 2.0.

The Web 2.0 Conference (recently renamed Web 2.0 Summit), which inspired the creation of Web 2.0 Expo, sold out months in advance this year and generated over 7,000 requests to attend. Web 2.0 Expo expands on the success of the conference, and will be the center of gravity for this influential community.
