Internet Week began in New York City in 2008. In 2010, it comes to Europe for the first time, with a five-day calendar of web-focused events taking place throughout London. The idea is to raise the profile of Europe’s digital industry, as well as the companies and organisations who participate.
In NYC last year, over 250 events took place – ranging from parties and meet-ups to executive breakfasts and conferences. We call this crowdsourced participation, where organisations, large and small, host these events for Internet Week – and we’re hoping for plenty more of the same in Europe 2010.
