Web Marketing Event in Montreal

Webcom Montreal 2009

Communication, Marketing & IT Professionals and Decision-Makers meet at the International Web Conference Webcom Montreal on Wednesday May 13th to discuss about Digital Identity, Innovation and Economic Development.

For a third time, I’ll attend the Webcom event on May 13th. Why? It’s one of the most popular (if not the most) events in Montreal about Web Marketing and Web communication where a lot of decision maker gather together for keynotes, panels, talks and hand shaking.

7th edition already planned

Next edition, in October 2009, will still take place at the same venue in Montreal and should again bring in around 500 attendees. It mostly targets communication and marketing people interested in web and all things digital.
