Despite growth in e-commerce, online transactions represented only 2 percent of U.S. retail spending last year. However, consumers are increasingly adopting the Internet to find information about local products and services. More and more, consumers shop online, but they still buy offline by huge margins.

Thatís why 475 executive-level attendees convened at Drilling Down on Local, April 18-20, 2005, in Santa Clara, California, to investigate the online-offline opportunity for interactive local media.

From IPTV and wireless, to local search and online classifieds, the speakers candidly discussed the local market opportunity and the challenges of capturing small-business advertising dollars. Conference highlights included provocative keynotes from A9.com CEO Udi Manber, Hearst SVP Lincoln Millstein and Sprint VP Paul Reddick.
