In March we can come together to collaborate and innovate as the industry evolves faster than ever before. The Publishing Show will provide an opportunity to discover just how bold and enterprising the industry has been. In September industry experts and our colleagues over two days gave an insight into how they have developed their businesses during the last few years, and how they will move forward in the future. Which looks positive.
Publishing and media is still in a state of flux and the recent crisis has accelerated existing trends towards digital platforms. Newsstand sales have declined, subscriptions have boomed, advertising first crashed and is growing to an even greater level than pre-pandemic. In person events were replaced by virtual, online communities flourished, and ailing print titles closed. The industry learned to work remotely, and borders disappeared for subscribers, audiences, and staff.
Whether you work in consumer magazines, B2B and professional publishing, membership organisations or news media, there is great value in listening to your peers. The challenges they have faced. The innovations from their teams. How their audiences and advertisers have adapted to a world lived online and remotely, and what the future holds.
