Heading for the West Coast?

Plans are afoot for a high level official Latvian delegation to meet with the top executives of a major US software company on the US West Coast, probably in August. The visitors will probably land somewhere north of San Francisco. This blogger may get details later this week. It's anybody's easy guess what we are talking about :).
This, hopefully, will be, at least in part, the long heralded visit to the US IT industry that the higher circles in Latvia have been planning for a long time (since the Skele administrations of the late 1990s). The government jaunts to Silicon Valley didn't come off because the falling apart horizon of these various governments was closer than the planning horizon for the visits :). Now, there may have been some event I missed, commentators correct me if I am wrong...
