The directory assistance market has advanced greatly from just giving people a telephone number to becoming the guardians of a world of information. The latest generation of information service providers is driven by the consumer and their use of new technology and mobile phones. The directory assistance industry alone uses numerous data sets to provide enhanced results to users including; location based services, sms results, call connect, mobile number listings, ask anything services, train timetables, and even giving directions. All of these allow the directory assistance company to add value and in many cases increase revenue and customer loyalty. With ongoing development and advancement of mobile phone apps the users can now obtain access to many of the same data sets whilst on the move. The conference aims to drive the industry forward by linking the new multimedia innovators to the established guardians and providers of information.

This year’s conference is taking into consideration the rapid changes in the Information & Directory Services industry. Discussions during the two day conference look at a number key topics including; Online futures, Local Search, Location Based Search, Mobile Search, Mobile Number Listings, Mobile Apps, Mobile Advertising, Customer Loyalty & Retention.
