Saturday, May 10, 2008

As the Web rolls onward in Web 2.0 (or is it 3.0?) the business models and infrastructure of online commerce and advertising continue to evolve rapidly. With more and more advertising dollars shifting to the Web and mobile applications, will advertising become more targeted to the individual and their physical location? Will localized search and targeted advertising be able to track advertising intelligently to you, your mobile device and your proximity to products and services? Today's program will examine coming advances in Web 2.0 and other key issues in technology and business impacting the future of online advertising, new media and mobile commerce. Is mobile advertising the next major landgrab in online commerce? Who will be the winners in the convergence of the Web, television and mobile? Are the Big Players or small nimble startups the best bet?

Today's event will feature presentations from key industry executives, longtime wireless industry advisors, serial entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. It will start with keynote presentations and company presentations from cutting edge startups and be followed by a panel discussion and plenty of audience Q&A. Please join us to find out where the industry is headed first hand.
