FreePint FreePint News
October 2008

Robin NeidorfAll kinds of anticipation create a build-up for Online Information. Will the trend toward software emphasis continue? What will be the impact of the major disruptions in the financial and insurance sectors?

As in the past, we’ll be exhibiting – come visit us at Stand #122. Better yet, let us know you’ll be attending. We’ll keep you informed about when you can meet FUMSI editors – they’ll be talking about the burgeoning opportunities for those who can Find, Use, Manage and Share Information. We’ll also have brief presentations by Pamela Clark, senior editor for VIP Magazine and formerly Director of Corporate Research & Development, AIG.

New this year will be a FreePint Online 2008 Special Report. Contribute one new idea – or 3 or 5 – and get a free copy of the published report.

Register your interest now – even if your budget doesn’t permit a trip to London, you can receive a copy of the report and share the insight.

Robin Neidorf,
General Manager, Free Pint Limited
