Leading Event Series to Bring Together Europe's rapidly growing Web 2.0 Business and Developer Communities

SAN FRANCISCO – April 18, 2007 – O'Reilly Media, Inc. and CMP Technology, co-producers of the annual Web 2.0 Summit and the global Web 2.0 Expo event series, today announced the launch of a new conference and tradeshow that will bring together top leaders and technologists who are building, leveraging, and driving the European web economy. Web 2.0 Expo Berlin, scheduled for November 6-8, 2007, will be held at Fairground Berlin, Germany.

Web 2.0 Expo is designed to be the major annual European gathering of the technical, design, marketing, and business professionals who are building the next generation web. The event will have three major components: an educational conference, including both traditional seminar formats and elements of peer-to-peer learning; a major tradeshow featuring the sellers of tools, technologies, services, and infrastructure; as well as networking events targeted at internet entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and business development executives.

"Web 2.0 is a global phenomenon. Network effects don't have national boundaries. But the collective intelligence harvested by the most interesting and innovative Web 2.0 applications often has a local flavor," said Tim O'Reilly, founder and CEO of O'Reilly Media. "We're excited to bring together the rapidly growing Web 2.0 business and developer communities in Europe for this new conference."

"Web 2.0 Expo Berlin will help European companies from all industry sectors put the principles of Web 2.0 to work for them," said Eric Faurot, Senior Vice President, CMP Technology. "We look forward to leveraging the successes of the Web 2.0 Summit and Web 2.0 Expo San Francisco and Tokyo to build the event that will define the European web economy and address the industry's needs."

Web 2.0 Expo Berlin joins the annual Web 2.0 Summit and Web 2.0 Expo events in San Francisco and Tokyo, which bring together the most innovative and successful internet industry figures and companies. These industry pioneers will provide attendees with examples of business models, development paradigms, and design strategies to enable mainstream businesses and new arrivals to the Web 2.0 world to take advantage of this new generation of services and opportunities.

The Web 2.0 Expo is going to be accompanied by a Web2open like in San Francisco, so in case you ever wanted to visit Berlin, now is the time to make some plans. ;)


The call for participation is open now as well:

(Tim, could you change the link to ? thx)


Updated the link.


according to the event website it is from 5 November to 8 November


At Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco in April, the day prior to the conference was reserved for workshops. The Ignite event was also held that night. My guess is Berlin will follow the same setup.


Aaand the good news is: Barcamp Berlin II is going to happen the weekend before. Infos will soon follow on that one! :o)))


More information about the Barcamp will be posted here: to




Still a lot to do around this, but at least it is finally online ;)
