SAN FRANCISCO -- O'Reilly Media, Inc. and CMP Technology, co-producers of the annual Web 2.0 Expo, today announced that they have received over 10,000 attendee registrations, doubling the number originally expected. Registrations will continue to grow through the event. Web 2.0 Expo is happening this week, April 15-18 at Moscone West in San Francisco, California.

"Web 2.0 is hitting its stride," said Tim O'Reilly, founder and CEO of O'Reilly Media. "When O'Reilly joined forces with CMP and John Battelle to launch the inaugural Web 2.0 Conference in 2004, we placed a bet on the future. We believed we were at the beginning of a seminal transformation that would impact business at its core. Given the strong response to Web 2.0 Expo, I'd say we bet wisely. But we've just begun to build out the Web's full potential. We're seeing the convergence of two huge industries, software and media, with tremendous innovation in both technology and business models. What's more, this is a global phenomenon. I'm looking forward to working with John and the CMP team on more events that will help entrepreneurs, existing companies, and their customers keep up with the explosion of new possibilities brought about by the new web platform."

"The concepts and technologies associated with Web 2.0 represent enormous opportunities for startups, enterprises, and individuals alike," said Jennifer Pahlka, co-chair of Web 2.0 Expo. "The registration numbers we are seeing for Web 2.0 Expo are very rare for a launch event, and are indicative of a huge demand for education in the technical, design and business aspects of the new Web."
