eDoorways Impresses Convention Goers at SXSW's Interactive Festival - Increasing Online User Base

eDoorways Enjoys High Sign-Up Ratio at Convention Booth - Surprising Guests With iPhone® Application Demonstration While eSee Technologies Launches the heAR App

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - March 15, 2010) - The eDoorways Corporation (PINKSHEETS: EDWY) has had a tremendous amount of success thus far at the South By Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Festival. With an amazingly designed booth, situated on prime convention floor real estate and next to one of the biggest names in web-technology, eDoorways has done nothing less than impress not only convention attendees but neighboring presenters. Surprising prospective users with a live demonstration of the eDoorways iPhone® App, along with the heAR Augmented Reality App launched this past weekend by eSee Technologies, the web-based software technology company has increased its user base by signing an estimated 70% of those attendees visiting its booth.

Mr. Gary Kimmons, Chairman & CEO of the eDoorways Corporation, stated, "We are still marveling at the attention our booth has received in just two days. Compliments to its design and presentation are echoed by the high number of physical sign-ups achieved within in the first 48 hours of the festival, along with the caliber of the visitors to our booth. I am confident that this event will serve us positively in the months to come."

As an incubator of cutting-edge technologies, showcasing the most creative technology from around the globe, the Interactive Festival portion of SXSW has grown substantially. With eDoorways poised to benefit from the estimated 40,000 people expected to attend the festival this year, Gary Kimmons kicked off the event by addressing the press at the conference's media event. Giving reporters an overview, Kimmons offered the press a look into an internet service offering geared toward total personalization and access to information through advanced intelligent technologies. Through the power of the revolutionary "PowerKeys," the significant possibilities of social networking in "pods" and easy access to the "cloud," Kimmons spoke of an internet that through the use of eDoorways, could possibly be more powerful than ever imagined.

The company's booth has been well received at the Interactive Tradeshow. Set up with six computers for attendee use, eDoorways representatives are kept busy giving around the clock demonstrations of platform. With a couple hundred attendees visiting the booth over the weekend, feedback has been positive with eDoorways registering close to 200 new customers on site. Positioned as social networking combined with advanced search technologies -- where search results are not just web pages but connections to real people in real time, on and offline -- the company has received nods of approval from both attendees and presenters alike; generating strong interest across the board. Having been approached by various local, domestic and international companies inquiring about "White Label" opportunities, it's been suggested that eDoorways' core functionality could greatly enhance current operations at a variety of corporate and government organizations.

Using SXSW as an opportunity to unveil future developments, the company also demonstrated their iPhone® application. Scheduled to be submitted to the Apple iTunes Store in April 2010, attendees were impressed by the ability to have live multi-level chats on their mobile phones, searching and joining the same exact conversations as those using the demonstration laptops.

"So much of the internet is going mobile and getting there quite rapidly in fact," stated Ann Collins, eDoorways Social Media Consultant and Solve Project Manager. "It is important that we remain ahead of the curve by developing our mobile platforms parallel too our desk-top web service offerings... if not ahead of it."

The heAR Augmented Reality Application, which also speaks to the company's pursuit of a strong and sophisticated mobile presence, was launched over the weekend by eSee Technologies. Meant to allow attendees the ability to navigate a virtual guide of the music and film festival, eSee Technologies hopes to afford Apple iPhone® & Android™ phone users (newest models) the ability to point mobile phone cameras at any location participating in the festival and see performance schedules, film schedules, learn about performing artist, tag a location, etc. While at this time the heAR Austin App isn't supported by the eDoorways platform, for social media purposes, attendees can still share their experience though other social media services such as Facebook & Twitter.

As expected, SXSW is already proving to be an incredible opportunity for eDoorways. With possible funding offers from venture capital firms and inquires from mega size technology companies, eDoorways appears to be gaining momentum and strength. Should the eDoorways continue to garner such positive attention, the web-based, social networking and advanced search technology software company may soon become a likely acquisition target for any larger tech outfit lacking the component eDoorways can deliver.
