The latest and greatest Internet products and services will come alive at the Las Vegas Convention Center, when COMDEX/Fall '96 opens this month. The dynamic growth of this technology is being addressed with "COMDEX Internet," established to offer attendees interactive demonstrations, comprehensive conference sessions and the largest exhibition of Internet and intranet companies ever assembled. With more than 450 Internet-related companies exhibiting and over 210,000 business professionals expected to attend, the COMDEX Internet component of COMDEX/Fall '96 stands to be the largest Internet focused event in the world. COMDEX/Fall '96, slated for November 18-22, 1996 in Las Vegas, Nevada, is the world's largest and most important computer trade show for resellers and corporate decision makers.
"COMDEX Internet" is a must-see for those business leaders looking to harness the power of the Internet for daily business operations and productivity enhancement, as well as for professionals looking to learn more about Internet products trends, applications and World Wide Web development. COMDEX Internet will also include heavy emphasis on the fastest-growing area of the Internet -- corporate intranets -- an up-and-coming trend which leverages the Internet as a secure enterprise-wide network.
"Business leaders look to COMDEX to help their companies learn about, adopt and then profit from the latest technologies," said Bill Sell, show director, COMDEX/Fall '96. "COMDEX Internet is another example of business leaders turning to COMDEX for insight into innovative technologies and potential revenue generators."
"COMDEX Internet" includes a number of key programs and interactive forums. Hands-on training will be available at the COMDEX Internet Experience, sponsored and developed by Compuserve. Set in a classroom format, this program allows participants with varying Internet skills to experience the many features on the Internet, and develop personal World Wide Web pages.
Enterprise@Web, an open demonstration developed and produced by Cambridge Technology Partners, will show the power of intranets in action. Intranets, one of the newest technologies in the marketplace, allow businesses to harness the Internet and share applications, company-wide. At this demonstation, attendees can witness a live intranet running real-life "company-wide" applications to solve key business problems. This exhibit provides viewers with a unique opportunity to see inner-workings of compelling technology, and talk with systems integrators one-on-one.

Several PowerPanels and SuperSessions that explore the Internet from various perspectives are slated during COMDEX/Fall '96.
