Web Site To Be Showcased This November at Infralympics- Athens 2000 in Athens, Greece
"The marketplace has shown no mercy, and rightly so, to B2B companies that had no substance, value proposition or customer base," according to Mr. Schneiter. He added, "GlobalSpec.com is closing in on its fifth anniversary. We have stayed true to our focus on delivering great value, as well as totally relevant information, to the engineering profession and its suppliers. Engineers use us to enhance their work and suppliers use us to deliver timely information about their offerings to their constituency. The breadth and depth of our web-based product is unprecedented."

"It may sound like an eternity from now, but the 2004 Olympic Summer Games are on the drawing boards now. Nearly 40 billion Euros will be spent, not only on this event, but also on regional engineering and infrastructure in the next four years. I am thrilled to announce that GlobalSpec.com will be participating in Infralympics - Athens 2000. This conference is designed to assist in the development of the infrastructure, equipment and services necessary for the successful staging of the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.
