Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The Computer Trade Show (CTS) managed to attract over 6,000 visitors in its two day run at Birmingham earlier this week. According to Stuart Greenfield, MD of the company which organises the show, on the first day there were 3,060 attendees, with a similar number arriving on day two. The show is in its second year, and Greenfield said that it had effectively doubled in size since its inception. A straw poll of some of the 400 exhibitors showed a high level of satisfaction with the quality of the visitors. Sukh Rayat, managing director of distributor Flashpoint, said he was very satisfied with the quality of visitors to his company's stand. He said that despite the direct approach of large vendors like Compaq and Dell, the number of small and medium sized dealers attendees showed there was good opportunities for business in the sector. He said he would definitely re-book for next year's exhibition. Rayat's comments were echoed by Alan Stanley, UK MD of memory distributor and manufacturer Dane-Elec. He had booked for this year's show after picking up good business at the first CTS last year. He said that prices for the floor space were reasonable. Other distributors exhibiting included Datrontech, Actebis -- which has just won an Intel franchise, Karma, Northamber and Microtronica, while there was a large number of smaller companies exhibiting. ®
