Internet World Fall 2000 - Serious About E-Business
NEW YORK CITY—Bringing the Web to consumers through not just computers but also mobile, wireless devices, from cell phones to pagers, seemed to be the common theme at Internet World Fall 2000.
The show was overwhelmed with dot-com this and e-that companies showing off their services, software in various stages of development and the wireless communication products. Intel, Microsoft, AOL and Adobe dominated the show floor with their vast, ubiquitous presence.
Intel emphasized the importance of being perceived as a leader in e-commerce and letting the world know that the company considers using the Internet a crucial part of its business plan. Intel will continue to expand its global sales and marketing presence into emerging markets, such as Russia, South America, India and Eastern Europe, continuing to build brand awareness all over the world, setting up distribution mechanisms and doing business online rather than by phone or fax.
