FORMER DISTANCE LEARNING STAFFER TO HOLD FREE GOVTECH EXHIBIT

You can't be cutting edge if you don't hone your skills, which is what the upcoming GovTech Exhibit is all about.

During his time at Old Dominion University, J. Mark Tisone helped build one of American academia's leading telecourse/teleconferencing centers. Then he went off into the business world to make videos and satellite courses that keep lawyers, engineers and others up to date on changes in their professions.

Those two fields - distance learning and business television - will come together at GovTech Technology Exhibit. This information technology and e-learning event will take place at the Norfolk Marriott Hotel & Conference Center on Friday, October 14, 2005, from 9 a.m. - Noon. The International Communications Corporation (ICC) invites all faculty, staff and students of Old Dominion University to participate free-of-charge.

Tisone, president of Norfolk-based International Communications Corp., the conference's main sponsor, said he thinks the region has the potential to leap to the forefront of the rapidly changing world of communications.

The exhibit is open to the educational community at no cost to participants.

Over 45 high-tech organizations will be exhibiting during the event including: Toner Cable, Wrightline, Dell Computer, EMC, Galaxy Control Systems, FasTrac, Sun Mircosystems, GovConnection, Beyerdynamics, CDW-G, Intelligent Decisions, CoastCom, En-Net, Network Appliance, T3 Corporation, Hubbell Premise Wiring, Mohawk, Anixter, Cisco Systems, Red Hat, Corporate Express, Tandberg, Stratus Technologies and Pyramid Strategies, among others.
