Top brands already on board for this year’s event

Internet World, the leading business internet and digital marketing event in the UK today announces its speaker line up for 2008, including representatives from some of the biggest brands in the business.

Speakers at this year’s event will include BBC Worldwide’s Head of Mobile Peter Mercier, Managing Director of BBC.com Kym Niblock, Senior Vice President of MySpace.com Travis Katz, Annelies van den Belt, Head of ITV Broadband and Chris Hogg, Director of Marketing for Intel.

Internet World will take place at Earls Court London 29th April – 1st May 2008. This year’s exhibition builds on last year’s award winning event which attracted representatives from some of the biggest names in world business – Procter & Gamble, General Motors, GlaxoSmithKline, Reuters and eBay.

Internet World is a forum that encompasses the central elements of corporate internet presence and all aspects of digital marketing – internet use by business, connectivity, digital marketing, content management and e-commerce.

James Drake Brockman, Director of Internet World says, “With top line speakers and an exciting programme, this year’s event promises to be even bigger and better. We will be looking at the hot topics everyone is talking about – Mobile, IPTV, Convergence and Behavioural Targeting. Crucially, figures from last year’s event show that more than half of our visitors came with the aim of purchasing new products and services – making Internet World the place for bringing together the key figures in the industry to meet, inform and do business.”
