TorontoTechWeek Announces Marketwire As Official Media Partner

Technology leaders will gather in Toronto this September 22 to share their knowledge and success, and now they will be able to share their technological triumphs with the rest of the world through Marketwire.
Marketwire has been named the official media partner and newswire provider to TorontoTechWeek. In addition to traditional releases, Tech Week and its partners will take advantage Marketwire’s new media options:  embedded photos and videos and social media 2.0 releases that will reach a slew of social media channels.
I’m not sure how many people were aware that Marketwire had a social media service.  In this way the partnership makes great sense-technology based leaders are the most likely to get their message out through the social media, and would be more than happy to have Marketwire for this purpose once they know they have the capability.
Meanwhile, TorontoTechWeek and its partners are able to access the very people who should attend each year.
“My vision for TorontoTechWeek is to create a venue where ideas are shared and people come together for business development, education, networking, and showcase,” says Dave Forde, Founder and Chair of TorontoTechWeek. “Everyone here will have a great story to tell, and we’re glad that Marketwire can help facilitate the process so easily.”
TorontoTechWeek brings the GTA technology community together to facilitate connections among industry stakeholders and to foster the sharing of knowledge, challenges, and best practices.  It runs the week of September 22 and 26, 2008
More than 2,000 people from Toronto and around the world are expected to attend the September 22 to 26 event, which features keynote speakers, educational sessions and networking opportunities.
TorontTechWeek partners will be able to take advantage of Marketwire’s exclusive distribution opportunities available until September 30, 2008.
