Eyes of Economic Analysts Focused on UBS Tech Conference
More than 100 CEOs and other executives will present their company's latest contributions to the tech industry at the UBS Global Technology & Services Conference during the next three days.
Considering the conditions of the economy, this year's conference, held at the Grand Hyatt in New York City, should garner even more attention than conferences of the past few years.
Notable tech names at the conference include:
Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) - combined forces with IBM (NYSE:IBM) to enhance the retail banking experience
Energy Conversion Devices (NASDAQ: ENER) - designs, manufactures and sells photovoltaic (PV) products, known as PV or solar laminates that generate renewable energy by converting sunlight into electricity.
Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) - Just signed a consultancy cooperation with King Saud University in the technical and educational fronts in addition to establishing a laboratory to enhance and develop colleges curriculum for computer technology for multi-core processors.
UBS' conference could prove to be a pivotal moment for established brands, as well as smaller companies on the rise. Think of the conference as a mid-term report for investors. Executives must deliver a promising message in an economy that's already teetering on the brink of a meltdown.
