    differece in meaning

    1)"I'm going to Washington for the week. We are launching a new website."

    OR

    2)"I'm going to Washington for the week. We are going to be launching a new website."

    1) It's kind of based on the knowledge of the speaker. So I would use it if it was important to me or concerned me. I would use the second one just state the fact without it being important to me. Is there any other difference between these two? Would they both sound OK?

    They both have the same meaning. #2 is unnecessarily wordy with "going to be".
