5/2 TECHNOLOGY FOR DECISION-MAKERS: THE KEY BUSINESS CHALLENGE
TO SUCCESS IN ASIA

May 2 - Technology for Decision-Makers: The Key Business Challenge to
Success in Asia, 8:30 a.m. ­ 1 p.m.

For too long, senior management at leading U.S. multinationals dismissed or
relegated to subordinates decisions about the key technology challenges
their firms confronted when entering Japan, China and Korea. Yet experience
has clearly demonstrated that companies whose business leaders understand
and successfully tackle the crucial business issues raised by technology
challenges have reaped enormous profits in diverse East Asian markets. The
list of success stories is long, and includes Microsoft, Peoplesoft and
Lycos.

This half-day conference--one of the first of its kind aimed at senior
decision-makers rather than technical line managers--will explore these
issues with the help of experienced leaders from large corporations that
have successfully tapped into Asian markets. This conference will be of
particular interest to CEOs, COOs, CTOs, and International, Marketing,
Sales, and Product Development Senior VPs. Includes continental breakfast
and lunch.

Confirmed keynote speakers:
- George Vradenburg, Executive Vice President, Global and Strategic Policy,
AOL Time Warner, Inc.
- Eric Gerritsen, Vice President of International Corporate Development,
Terra Lycos

Other confirmed speakers include:
- Toby Phipps, Product Manager, Global Technology, PeopleSoft
- Roger Servison, Managing Director & Executive Vice President, Fidelity
Investments
- Leo Keeley, President & CEO, Japan Infotech
- Eric Schmitt, Senior Analyst, Forrester Research
- Robert Rubin, Executive VP, Internet Services, FAST Search And Transfer
- Benson Margulies, CTO, Basis Technology
- Adam Waters, VP, Internet Architecture, iAsiaWorks
- Max Waldbaum, Senior Partner, Lead, Intellectual Property Group, Salans
