A late entry to the keynote has been Brent Hoberman, the founder of British lastminute.com who have recently taken over holiday booking in the electronic world. Last Minute provide cheap bookings of hotels and flights all around the world, however, as the name suggests, you get the remaining rooms and seats on a special deal. With 1.65 million viewers per week, Hoberman knows a thing or two about launching a successful business in the digital world.
