Interex Triples Membership

Your HP user group, Interex, announced today that membership numbers 
have tripled in the past two years. The organization boasts a whopping 
56,919 members (up from 16,751 two years ago). That's particularly 
impressive given the economic downturn and general decline in user group 
membership elsewhere in the industry. 

A recent survey showed that you and your fellow members are key 
influencers and buyers at companies with IT spending totaling more than $100 
billion annually.

Interex members are directly involved in HP-supported platforms and 
products across the board, including HP-UX, J2EE, Linux, MPE, .NET, 
NonStop, OpenVMS, Windows Server and others. 

Interex serves you with advocacy, including powerful annual surveys, 
events and SIGs; conferences, the HP World Technology and Solutions 
Conference & Expo and Solutions Symposiums; and publications: HP World 
Magazine, HP World News, Inside HP, HP World OpenView, HP World Solutions 
Directory, InterexPress and HP World Tech Journal.

Interex has always been a great user group, but with triple the 
members, it offers more networking opportunities, more power and more 
influence. -- Mike Elgan
