The event was annual exhibition of information technologies and is considered to be one of the most respectable occasions in the field in Baltic States. It took place from 04.04.2001 till 07.04.2001 in the most popular place for large-scale exhibitions in Riga – Kipsalas Exposition Hall. The aim of the event is to support and popularize the information technology and give the opportunity of business presentations on more or less equal grounds to the main mass of entrepreneurs in the field. Attendance has always been brisk, largely because the status of the event – it is considered by the majority of information related businesses to be the central event of the year. So the attendance is required if only for the sake of appearances. The building itself is especially designed for vast events such as this, so it gives the impression of grand splendor at least. The huge crowds are just lost inside. The main area is dotted with booths and stands of presenting companies. The main impression is that of oversized hive. Par. 3.
The feeling when leaving the event was one of joy combined with the mild disappointment. The last arose mostly of the tedious repeating in the things advertised and presented. The first – from the feeling of activity and readiness and from some good accents in presentations. I would certainly recommend the event to anyone with the interest in the field, although not to someone whose sole purpose is the joy of discovery.
