Print, Digital, Tablets and More: World Publishing Expo (IFRA Expo) Announces Conference Schedule
Already the world’s largest global trade exhibition for the news publishing and media industry, the World Publishing Expo is expanding the conferences and seminars that accompany the event, making it even more attractive for the thousands of visitors who attend each year.
The Expo, organised by the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) from 29 to 31 October next in Frankfurt, Germany, will provide a venue for CEOs, IT directors, business development directors, technical heads and chief editors to experience the new and proven technologies for publishing news in print and on tablets, mobile, and online.
The World Publishing Expo’s innovative Media Port seminars will feature sessions on tablet and mobile trends, innovative advertising, digital innovation, social media best cases and excellence in printing. The Power of Print sessions will focus on innovations in printing, selling print capacity and upgrading printing presses. And the Expo will also include the 5th Tablet and Apps Summit, and the Advertising Summit 2012.
