Since attendance at Lotusphere 2002 in Orlando is expected to be down as much as 50% from last year, more Lotus Software enthusiasts will likely keep tabs on the show from afar.
Sandra Marcus, Lotus' program director for worldwide corporate events, said the company will update its Web site at least once each day with news from the show, and links to those updates will be posted on its home page.
Webcasts, however, will only be available to attendees. Marcus said even though Lotus videotapes nearly all Lotusphere sessions, putting those recordings on the Web is expensive.
The Webcasts are part of Lotusphere 2002 Online, a Web-based repository of Webcasts, information, and discussion databases that is available to attendees shortly before, during and after Lotusphere.
Video recordings of Lotusphere sessions will be available for sale following the show. Marcus said only about 25% of the sessions will be sold as video recordings because of copyright issues involving non-Lotus presenters and case studies involving Lotus customers.
Cassettes will be sold through Stamford, Conn.-based Everett Hall Associates, Inc. for $24.95 each, though volume discounts are available. Recordings will available in all video formats worldwide.
