This year's Internet World Australia Pacific 98 Conference and Exhibition has broken previous attendance records for the fourth year in a row, with organisers and exhibitors alike delighted with the size and quality of the attendance.

Exhibitors told Internet World reporters they were impressed with the quality of visitors to the event, indicating a growing awareness of e-commerce and Internet technologies in corporate Australia.

The event 98 was hailed as "extremely well-attended" by Peter Reid, marketing director at Kirby Network Services which convened the event in association with Mecklermedia. Some 13,405 people attended the show over the three days from August 11-13, said Reid, with 85 exhibitors at the trade show. There were also an estimated 650 delegates to the main conference.

"This year signals the coming of age of the growth and development of the show," he added.
