Speaking at the Virtual Worlds Forum in London


I will be speaking at the Virtual Worlds Forum in London.

From e-tail to v-business: are virtual goods an entirely new category

* What are virtual goods and how is the sector growing?
* Understanding the consumer motivation for virtual goods
* Is v-business the bright new shiny business model?
* Can you bridge the gap between virtual item sales and real items?
