We have had a lot of interest and discussion with many of our fair exhibitors and we think 2011 is the right year to launch this annual event," said Bologna programme manager Roberta Chinni. "Things move very quickly in the digital world and we see changes that affect the whole industry."

Speakers confirmed for the day include Kate Wilson of Nosy Crow, Scott Chambers of Sesame Workshop, Josh Koppel, founder of technology company ScrollMotion; Richard Padley, m.d. of Semantico; and Sindo Varela Diaz from
