Internet World UK looked small but pretty well formed on its opening day of three at Kensington's Olympia exhibition space today. Although the show is unlikely to detain visitors for a full day, there are some interesting exhibitors and, unlike most recent shows, seemed to be in tune with its corporate theme.
Among show highlights:
Push software vendor BackWeb Technologies showed off two new partners, Heineken and Lufthansa, and announced a public beta of its Macintosh client.
Oxford-based Panormania demonstrated Object Video, a 360-degree imaging technology for the Web based on ActiveX.
The UK Internet User Group showed off an all-new Web site.
The BBC showed off the work-in-progress of its new Beeb Web service to be launched June 5.
Sun Microsystems showed new Net security products.
The Red Herringdiscussed Venture Market Europe, a forum to raise capital for hi-tech entrepreneurs.
Other exhbitiors included Apple, Caldera and Macromedia.
