Now is probably a good time to start marking your diary for the forthcoming Internet World UK Spring 97. It's all taking place at Earls Court, London on 20-22 May. The show is sponsored by Internet World magazine and is part of Mecklermedia's Internet World global tour, with shows from New York to Kuala Lumpur. With links to the global tour, the UK event capitalises on the internationality of its speakers, delegates and exhibitors.
The exhibition is targeted at senior executives looking to broaden their knowledge of the Internet and intranet.
