RIMC 2008 a huge success
This year's Reykjavik Internet Marketing Conference was bigger than ever, with over 300 delegates gathering for the full-day conference and expo at the Hilton Reykjavik Nordica in Iceland.
The RIMC conference, which was organised by Morgunbladid in co-operation with Nordic eMarketing, saw a host of Icelandic and international speakers come to discuss the latest trends in Internet marketing.
Icelandic Minister of Commerce, Bjorgvin Sigurdarson, opened the one-day conference with the first speech, which was then followed by the head of IndexTools web analytics software, Dennis Mortensen.
This year's event was held on the tenth anniversary of the founding of mbl.is - the online edition of the Icelandic national paper, Morgunbladid. Olafur Nielsen, expert from Morgunbladid's Internet department, addressed delegates on how the online publication has benefitted from using IndexTools analytics software for its website.
Delegates also got the opportunity to network with peers and meet some of the industry's leading figures in Internet marketing and advertising. The accompanying expo took place alongside the conference, featuring a number of Icelandic businesses and their products and services.
Director of Nordic eMarketing, Kristjan Mar Hauksson, said he was very pleased with the increase in number of guests this year and looked forward to an even bigger event next year. He added that there was also a strong possibility of an Internet marketing event to be held in Mumbai, India later in 2008.
