I created, promoted, and produced “New York to China” trade missions in 2002, 2003, and promoted 2004. Working in partnerships with CCPIT/CCOIC (China Council for the Promotion of International Trade/ China Chamber of International Commerce) and NYSIA (New York Software Industry Association), I brought several dozen U.S. and international technology executives and academia to China. We attended ChinaSoft 2002 and 2003, technology conferences of several thousand people, where I arranged for some of our delegates to have keynote presentations. We also toured the major “tier 1” and “tier 2” cities’ economic development zones and campuses.

The New York Software Summit 2000 was a central “tribal gathering” of all groups of business people as well as technical people in the software, IT, and internet development communities in New York city and state. With over 1,000 attendees, 20 tracks of workshops, each track consisting of 3 workshop breakout sessions, there was substantial material to share with all. From CEOs, to Sales VPS, CTOs, Project Managers, and others with an interest in high tech, hundreds of companies and all different job titles and sectors of the software/internet development industry led and attended workshops. Everyone had an opportunity to learn, to share business and technical information, and to develop a stronger sense of identity and presence as an industry. It was the largest annual gathering of New York software, IT, and internet professionals.
The Summit was held at the Brooklyn Marriot in Downtown Brooklyn, just one train stop across the river from Manhattan. NYSIA and many of the co-sponsoring organizations were committed to bringing NY’s high tech expansion to areas outside of Manhattan’s central business districts. We are supporting the Digital NYC program, which has opened up 7 high-tech districts in all of NY’s boroughs. Downtown Brooklyn is one of the districts offering affordable high tech commercial space.
The Summit was designed to be inclusive and cover the broadest range of topics, offering something for everybody and giving the many talented people in the industry a chance to share their views and knowledge.
In addition to the two all-star panels, “The Future of the Internet: The Analysts’ Crystal Ball” and “The Future of the Internet: The Practitioners’ Crystal Ball,” New York Senator Chuck Schumer will be the luncheon keynote speaker.
The Software Summit’s host, NYSIA, is a not-for-profit organization working to build the software development industry in the metropolitan area and assist companies and individuals in the New York software community.
