The Gilbane Report has formed Lighthouse Seminars, LLC in partnership with Exgenex to expand its conference business. Lighthouse Seminars will develop targeted events focused on content technology and industry trends, and will provide focused, content-rich and independent events that businesses are looking for by combining in-depth IT management discussions with best practices and case studies developed under the auspices of the Gilbane Content Technology Works initiative. Gilbane conferences produced by Lighthouse Seminars initially include: March 24 – 26, 2004 at the Westin Bonaventure in Los Angeles, focused technology and solutions for managing data-rich content, such as information associated with complex products found in aerospace and defense, and media-rich content, such as digital assets used in training, brand marketing, and media and entertainment applications; and October, 2004 in New York City, focused on content technology for financial service applications and marketing operations. The Gilbane Report will continue to work with existing conference partners, including Seybold Seminars, who produces the Gilbane Conference on Content Management at Seybold San Francisco, IDEAlliance, AIIM, and TechnoForum/Reed. www.lighthouseseminars.com, www.gilbane.com/CM_conference_LA_04.html, www.exgenex.com
