Los Angeles – International media veteran and E! co-founder Larry Namer has been invited to be the keynote speaker and will be honoured with the “Envisioneer Award” at the special opening night dinner gala of the fifth Annual LAWEBFEST, scheduled for March 26-30 at 8pm at the Radisson Hotel at LAX.

“We’re thrilled to invite Larry Namer, one of the titans of the cable television industry, as our opening day guest of honour,” said LAWEBFEST founder Michael Ajakwe. “Larry was there when cable TV was just getting started and literally helped build it at a time when the skeptics were questioning its viability. He also created E! which redefined the way people consumed entertainment around the world. The LAWEBFEST audience can definitely learn from such a visionary.”
