London, United Kingdom, February 19, 2007 --( Internet research group E-consultancy is hosting a new annual event on 6 March in London called 'Digital Cream', which is aimed at helping marketers to improve their internet operations.

The event is based on feedback from E-consultancy's 47,000-strong user base, and constitutes our response to our question: "What are the biggest operational headaches you face?" The four areas of pain commonly encountered are:
