Campus Party Mexico Breaks Attendance Record

MEXICO CITY – The third edition of Campus Party Mexico attracted 7,192 “campus-goers” to the seven-day technology fair, more than attended all the other such events in Spain, Colombia and Brazil, the sponsor Telefonica said.

Leonardo Santiago, responsible for the technology of Telefonica subsidiary Movistar for Campus Party, the huge Internet and software fair dedicated to leisure activities, said that all those attending had access to high-speed Internet.

“The highest number of campus-goers to be connected at the same time was 7,192,” Santiago said about the event that ended Sunday.

The third Campus Party Mexico not only broke the attendance record, it also presented an impressively complete display of technology installed and operated by Telefonica, whose brand in Latin America is Movistar, the company said in a communique.

For seven days Campus Party offered more than 500 hours of training in workshops, seminars and contests.

Taking part in this edition were worldwide experts in digital culture like Vinton Cerf, one of the creators of the Internet; Tim Berners-Lee, originator of the World Wide Web; Al Gore; David Hanson, founder of Hanson Robotics; and Jon “maddog” Hall, executive director of Linux International. EFE
