Dear Exhibitor:

The Linux Expo is back!

Planning for the Fourth Annual Linux Expo is well under way and this year's event is filled with many new and exciting events! It is being held at the Bryan Center at Duke University on May 28-30. Exhibit space for this year's event has doubled and we've got a great line-up of speakers. Our two part conference features a business track as well as the ever-popular technical track. This year's speakers include: Jon maddog Hall, Alan Cox, Dave Miller, Lars Wirzenius, Daryll Strauss from Digital Domain, Linus Torvalds, and many others.

And there's more! Scheduled events include a Quake Fest, Games Forum,"Editor Wars", 2nd Annual Linux Bowl, added tutorials, and we'll announce the winner of a Programming Contest! (see Red Hat Labs for more info on the contest) We will also have great receptions where you can talk to industry leaders and customers in a relaxed setting. We encourage exhibitors and sponsors to have hospitality suites of their own in nearby hotels.

Last year's show had the highest attendance at a Linux-specific show ever at around 1000. With the added space and events for this year's Expo we predict attendance will surely double, if not triple in size! So be sure to mark your calendar to be at this history-making event! You can't miss this extraordinary opportunity to exhibit with the finest names in the Linux community. But please hurry, exhibit space is going fast!
