The day will provide an opportunity to learn about the companies, products and solutions available in the Zope Economy. The event will also include information on value added products, and services together with details of integrators who can deploy them."

By bringing together the leading organizations in the UK we hope to develop working protocols which will allow everyone to maximize the potential of Zope".
