Jacksonville, FL. (PRWEB) March 11, 2008
The new AssociationOfVirtualWorlds.com in recognition of the rapid emergence of virtual worlds has named August 20 the first annual Virtual Worlds Day and applied to Chase's Calendar of Events for inclusion.
"How better to recognize virtual worlds than to give them their own day? People everywhere work and play inside of virtual worlds and the number of users is growing dramatically. Whether you enjoy on-line games or simulating real life events for training or connecting with colleagues around the globe inside a virtual workspace, this day is for you," says Dave Elchoness, Executive Director.
"I am very excited that the Association of Virtual Worlds is, to the best of my knowledge, the first to not only identify the need for such a day of recognition and celebration for what is rapidly becoming the future of the Web, but to take action and apply to have this very special day included in such a respected source as Chase's."
Chase's Calendar of Events owned by The McGraw-Hill Companies has become one of the most comprehensive and authoritative reference available on special events and holidays and is a trusted reference source for thousands of libraries across the country, broadcast and print media, speakers, meeting planners and more according to a description of the company.
The Association of Virtual Words is a global industry association for the rapidly growing virtual worlds industry.
