E-Web CEO Gary Ng and Head of Sales Jeff Yang were invited to attend The Internet Show, held 13th-14th of April in Melbourne.
This is the first time the globally popular expo, dedicated to optimising online business, has been held in Melbourne. Prior locations have included Singapore, New York, Abu Dhabi, Johannesburg, Chicago and Sydney.
The focus of the expo was firmly on educating all businesses, regardless of size, on the best and most cost-effective techniques for growing their online presence. 40 informational seminars were held over the two day event, on topics such as social media marketing, digital advertising, site structuring, e-commerce systems, content management, and web hosting.
The event was hosted by Australian success story Melbourne IT, and sponsored by Google, which delivered fantastic presentations on the benefits of using AdWords to generate online business and branding in Australia and worldwide.
Gary and Jeff had a great time taking in all the latest industry developments, and came back excited and eager to apply what they learned to E-Web’s ongoing mission to be the leader in providing businesses in Australia with the best strategies for online success.
Apart from further developing his network with leading industry professionals, Gary made his mark on the event by destroying the competition in Saturday’s Nintendo Wii balloon darts contest.
Many attendees tried their hand at the darts game – including Jeff, who came second – but it was E-Web’s own CEO who scored the maximum number of points and took the vaulted $20 prize. Proving that he is generous as well as accurate, Gary donated his hard-won prize money to buy runner-up Jeff breakfast the following day!
