2010 Worldwide Tour for Ektron Community Announced

Ektron Executives and Local Users to Meet in North America, U.K. and Pacific Region

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - February 4, 2010) - Ektron Inc., a Web content management, social software and marketing optimization solution provider, today announced the schedule for its worldwide local user group tour.

Ektron's local user group meetings offer attendees a chance to share information and knowledge, network with other Ektron developers and meet with Ektron executives. The half-day sessions will include presentations focusing on the Ektron community story, the new Ektron Exchange and Code Factory Group and demonstrations of eIntranet 2.0.

"Ektron is committed to maintaining a strong and vibrant community for its users," says Bill Rogers, Ektron CEO and founder. "For example, the Ektron Exchange, which will offer new community benefits and features, is in response to the feedback we've received in our DevCenter forums. Similarly, our forthcoming Code Factory Group is being created based on what we've heard from the community on features they'd like to see in Ektron's solution. And, we've seen first-hand how our intranet has improved the way Ektron employees work together. That experience and input from our external user community has driven the direction of our new eIntranet 2.0, which will be demonstrated at the Local User Group sessions.

"But, the Local User Groups are more than an opportunity to hear about the new technology and programs we're offering," Rogers continues. "They're a way to meet our executive team, exchange ideas and share information with them and other Ektron users. We hope every Ektron user in the area will attend."

"The Ektron Local User Group provides the opportunity to discuss your experience and goals with others in the Ektron community," says Chris Parent, Web specialist at Rivier College. "The topics are appropriate and easily accessible for both newcomers and veteran users. From discussions on upcoming product functionality to exchanging real-world challenges with your peers, the Local User Group can help you to creatively manage your Web content."

Kicking off on March 16th in Boston, the full 2010 Ektron Local User Group meeting schedule and registration information can be found at http://usergroups.ektron.com/
