This morning begins a very high profile weekend for the internet in Iceland with today’s Reykjavik Internet Marketing Conference and the accompanying high-tech expo which runs until Sunday.
Both the Reykjavik Internet Marketing Conference (RIMC) and the Netid expo are taking place at Smaralind shopping centre’s Winter Garden indoor arena and in the Smarabio Cinema, which is in the same building.
RIMC is now in its fifth outing and all tickets sold out long before the day. In the current business climate companies appear to be more enthusiastic than ever to optimise their use of the web and make sure they are not losing out to competitors online.
Speakers this year come from expert online brands including Microsoft/Bing, Ericsson, Beyond Ink, CCP Games (famous for Eve Online) and SEMPO, the international Search Engine Marketing Professional Organisation.
RIMC is organised by Nordic eMarketing, a leading online marketing company; and mbl.is, the most popular Icelandic language website.
While conference tickets are indeed sold out, visitors to Smaralind’s Winter Garden will be able to browse the expo and ask the experts questions until Sunday.
