1. Wide geography of the Summit

Now you can have a look at the list of participants divided after countries at the web site, www.soft-outsourcing.com. As well as last year, the geography of the Summit is very wide. You may see already such countries as USA, Australia, Germany, Finland, as well as several regions of Russia, Byelorussia, Ukraine.

2. New partners

We have got new partners to the Summit - National and Regional IT Associations. We express our profound gratitude, welcome them and thank for their assistance: - VIW, Federation of the Information Industry of Austria, www.viw.or.at - NVTC, Northern Virginia Technology Council, www.nvtc.org - Ukrainian Association of Software Developers, www.uaswd.org.ua

New Partners will promote the event among their members, place information about the Summit at the web site and in the newsletters. We have also got company Luxoft (www.luxoft.com) as an informational sponsor of the Summit.

Another important achievement is the very fact of participation of the President of FRAEC (Foundation for Russian-American Economic Cooperation) Mss. Carol Vipperman. She is our guest of honor who will surely enhance both international importance and practical attractiveness of the Summit.

3. Updated version of the program

The updated version of the program may be also found at the web site, www.soft-outsourcing.com

4. Will the customers attend the Summit?

The most common question about IT outsourcing events is whether potential customers will attend it or not. Now we have gathered a lot of IT outsourcing providers from several regions - St Petersburg, Moscow, Novosibirsk, Samara, Rybinsk, Nizhny Novgorod, Ukraine, Byelorussia, Baltic countries. That large choice of potential partners has already attracted large companies interested in IT outsourcing. For example, such big customers as large Finnish operational system developer Tekla, German divisions of Agilent Technologies and of Alcatel, Finnish communications provider Sonera and famous American Xerox - have been already registered as participants.

5. Exhibition news

For the moment 30 exhibitors have confirmed their participation with separate stands. The exhibition will be divided into several parts - a) IT outsourcing providers which will show their solutions, b) IT Associations which will present their activities, information about their members and their interest for IT outsourcing, c) informational partners.

The exhibition will be situated in the entrance hall of Pulkovskaya hotel and near the Congress Hall.

More information about exhibition will be placed at the web site during April 2002.

6. Practicalities

The Organizing Committee will assist the Summit participants in all practical questions - visa support, hotel bookings, transportation, extra cultural program. We provide also extra service - booking of match-making meetings during the match-making session. All interested companies can send a list of the companies they want to meet (up to 10 companies) to the Organizing Committee, and we will assist in meeting bookings.

Another option is a possibility to arrange company visits during your stay in St Petersburg. That possibility can be especially interesting for users of IT outsourcing services who may study the potential of their future partners, visit their premises, meet with personnel, etc.
