I was angry to have missed the Internet World trade fair, only to hear from
all of you that it was a shambles, poorly directed, lacking in focus etc,

Maybe we should consider a trade/conference fair specialising on Internet
advertising and marketing strategies in the UK/Europe today, set up by this
UKNM group(!), with more focussed aims , where stalls would be manned by
site owners and the day would be targeted at businesses wishing to push
their brands on web sites in the UK. Advertisers could shop around, there
could be lots of talks from industry stalwarts about technology,
advertising, targeting, right down to the more technical and specific:
seminars & workshops on web marketing and how to get the best for your
business/web site, banner advertising, ad serving systems and so on and so

Before you all scream "Who has the time?" I thought it would be a great
