Growing to Meet the Needs of The Expanding Canadian Internet Market
From 1996 to 1997, Internet usage in Canada doubled in size, increasing from 9.7% of the country's population to 19.3% - or a total of 4,529,000 people.*
As these numbers continue to climb, Canada is fast-becoming one of the most explosive Internet markets in the world - offering a wealth of opportunities for business-to-business Internet companies who are smart enough to target this lucrative region.
There is no clearer evidence of the Internet's increasing importance to Canadian business than the consistent growth of Internet World Canada, the country's largest and longest-running Internet, intranet and World Wide Web conference and exhibition.
In the past three years alone, the exhibition has experienced steady growth - increasing from 21,500 square feet in 1996, to 31,550 square feet in 1998. And with 1999 attendance projected to top 13,000 Internet business professionals, Internet World Canada is, by far, your best source of targeted sales to the business-to-business Internet/intranet market in Canada.
