Web Wednesday with Chris Dobson, Executive VP, Global Ad Sales for BBC Worldwide and BBC.com

Web Wednesday is THIS Wednesday, the 10th of June (the last day of AdTech).  Remember that we are also at a new location this month – BALACLAVA’s at the Suntec Convention Centre.  6pm till 8:30pm!

chrisdobson170.jpgThe speaker this month all the way from London is Chris Dobson, Executive VP, Global Ad Sales for BBC Worldwide and BBC.com.  Chris will be sharing his insights on ‘Digital Media Business Models – on the critical list?’   Chris used to run global adsales at MSN and is ex-MTV so he has some pretty interesting perspectives having been on the portal side and now back to the publisher side.  Given what the BBC.com is doing with video in the UK (their video on demand platform uses something like 7% of all UK traffic) I am sure that he can also share some interesting things about video online.

This month our sponsor, the BBC.com will be providing you the first drink of the evening.  The event is at Balaclava at the Suntec convention centre so it is right next to AdTech.  Head on over after the last session.  The party starts at 6pm!

The BBC.com will also be giving away 3 of the new super slim iPod Shuffles at the event, so make sure that you leave your card at the door.

This is going to be a great event- make sure that you don’t miss it!

See you Wednesday evening at 6pm at Balaclava!
