    NEW YORK, April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- With broadband moving into high gear,
 eTV World -- the leading conference on the convergence revolution and its
 effects in the business and home -- will be an innovative showcase at New
 York's newest technology event: TECHXNY.  Taking place June 25-28, 2001 at the
 Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, TECHXNY (http://www.techxny.com) is a new
 venture created by CMP Media LLC, and is designed to unite those companies and
 associations who are instrumental in shaping today's business and technology
 solutions.  At the apex of TECHXNY is the 19th Annual PC EXPO, the premier
 information technology trade show.
     eTV World will feature a 100+ speaker conference and an 8,000 sq. foot
 pavilion showcasing the growing trend to more useful televisions, mass
 adoption of internet/interactive features, next generation "Bricks & Clicks"
 strategies and the growing interest in home networking -- a major driving
 force in home technology sales.
     "eTV World is about the total sweep of change," says founder and executive
 program director Alan Brody. "Unlike old interactive TV, which sounded to many
 like 'work TV,' eTV World is about a new generation of TV and communication
 'served up your way.'"
     This conference will highlight the major companies driving the future of
 this exciting next step in the New Media revolution, and feature top of the
 line speakers.  Past panels have included leading executives from companies
 like WorldGate, Microsoft, Wink TV, ACTV, iBeam, Dot TV, Virage, Yack!,
 Liberate, ICTV, Yahoo Broadcast.com, Cylo, PBS, and ABC.com.
     "There are almost four times as many TVs than PCs in the average
 household," says Allison Dollar, eTV World's program director and co-host,
 "and everyone, not just this coming generation of youth, expects their TVs to
 do more for them. As lines between advertising and commerce becomes more
 efficient, there will be no end to what TVs can do."
     Mr. Brody adds that " ...  the convergence industry has learned that mass
 adoption only occurs after the technical influencers give their thumbs up, and
 that is why eTV World is at TECHXNY/PC EXPO. This is the ultimate platform to
 demonstrate to adoption leaders the future of time shifting communicative TV
 with rich streaming options, ubiquitous ASP functionality and wireless
 extensions. eTV is the moneymaking catalyst of all these exciting but not-yet
 profitable technologies."
     "New York is the media capital of the world, so what better place to host
 an event like eTV World? We're thrilled to have the conference join us at
 TECHXNY/PC EXPO," said Christina Condos, TECHXNY/PCEXPO's Show Director.  "eTV
 World represents a cross-section of the true movers in digital media; our
 attendees will benefit from the convergence of luminaries and pioneers from
 Hollywood, Silicon Valley, Madison Avenue and Wall Street presenting at this
 event."
     TECHXNY (http://www.techxny.com) will feature a full week of other
 exciting conferences, education summits and special events.  The PC EXPO
 exhibition will showcase top IT vendors and solution providers, offering
 attendees a chance to explore the newest developments in mobile and wireless
 technologies, B2B and B2C e-commerce systems, leading edge internet security
 advances, CRM solutions, ASPs and storage applications. For more information
