Bill Gates to be keynote speaker at IT Forum in Copenhagen  

Microsoft holds its largest European conference on IT structure at Bella Center in November with Bill Gates as the keynote speaker

Microsoft holds its largest European conference on IT structure, IT Forum 04, at Bella Center, Copenhagen from 16 – 19 November with Bill Gates giving the opening keynote address. Other key Microsoft and Industry technology experts present at the conference include Scott Charney, Eric Rudder, Jesper Johansson, Steve Riley and Rafal Lukawiecki. Last time Bill Gates visited Copenhagen was in February 2001 in connection with the Future Focus conference. The news is reported by Computerworld online and on Microsoft's website.


Microsoft has a natural edge in Denmark, since it is the home ground of Navision, one of a small number of companies Microsoft acquired to create the Microsoft Business Solutions Unit, along with the purchases of Great Plains Software and Solomon. Microsoft acquired Navision in 2002 for USD 1.76 billion (approx. DKK 11 billion), the second most expensive acquisition in its history up to that time.
