Team Lightbulb Completes Successful First Year; Adds New Events for 2008

VIENNA, VA--(Marketwire - December 12, 2007) - Team Lightbulb™, a premier conference, trade show and event planning and management organization, announced today the completion of a highly successful first year and the addition of new events for 2008.

Team Lightbulb's clients benefit from the extensive experience and expertise of principals John Abel, Lee Ann Burr, Mark Rebholz and Sean Sullivan in technology, especially IPTV, communications and broadcasting, as well as end-to-end event planning and management. The company began the year with the first-ever series of conferences targeting telecom professionals at the National Association of Broadcasters' (NAB) annual trade show. Produced just two months after the firm was established in January 2007, Team Lightbulb developed three IPTV conferences, secured speakers, sold exhibit space and sponsorships, and marketed the conferences, which helped attract the largest number of telecom professionals in NAB's history.

Team Lightbulb produced another conference on IPTV, Telecom Crash Course: Exploring the IPTV Universe, in New York City, and featuring telecom guru Steven Shepard.

The firm expanded its subject matter expertise with the Digital Content Summit in Philadelphia. This conference addressed the business and technical aspects of utilizing digital content and attracted professionals from educational organizations, museums, and others. It also assisted with educational outreach, webinars and producing member conferences for another association.

Looking forward to 2008, Team Lightbulb will again produce its successful Telecom2008 at the NAB Show, focusing on building an IPTV business. Companies interested in exhibiting or sponsorships can contact

The company is further expanding with the coordination of the inaugural conference series at the International Manufacturing Technology Show, IMTS 2008. IMTS is the leading manufacturing technology industry exhibition and is produced by the Association for Manufacturing Technology (AMT).

Further details on Team Lightbulb's 2008 events will be announced in 2008.
