29th April 2008: Internet World, the UK's largest digital business
show, today opens its doors for the 17th time, since first opening in
1992. The show features BBC Worldwide and Google amongst its speaker
and is set to raise the bar once more, with it's biggest event yet.
This builds upon last year's accolades, including Best Business
Exhibition. As the fastest growing event in its industry, Internet
World has been able to attract keynote speakers from industry leaders
including ITV, MySpace and Nokia.
Internet World is a digital marketing forum that attracts a serious
business audience. It is the only show that covers all the key issues
relating to online strategy; all addressed under one roof, it provides
an end-to-end solution for visitors. This is why 89% of attendees are
involved in purchasing, with 20% of those companies having over 1000
employees. Although primarily a UK event, an increased number of
worldwide exhibitors and delegates will be attending.
"With over 300 exhibitors and some of the best speakers we've ever had,
this year's event maintains our incredible progress. By remaining
focused on what is important to our industry our appeal will only
increase," commented James Drake-Brockman, Event Director of Internet
"We have continued to adapt our approach to the event and evolved where
the market has. We are taking advantage of all multimedia
opportunities, through our website, blog and chart-topping viral game.
The buzz around the event is immense and anyone involved in the
internet world needs to be here."
The latest cutting edge topics covered at the event include IPTV,
mobile and behavioural targeting. They will complement other areas such
as e-commerce, digital marketing and content management to form a
