    The classical publishing house business model is coming under pressure.

    The circulation figures of nearly all print products are either stagnating or falling.

    Advertising revenues are in freefall or shifting to other media: in 2011, for the first time advertising expenditure in the Internet exceeded the ad spend on TV and in newspapers together.

    But why is it that many publishing houses experience so much difficulty in making a profit in the Internet, despite the fact that a willlingness does exist to pay for content? Do media operations need the support of social media platforms, e.g. to reach new customer audiences? Or are Facebook, YouTube , etc., moving towards "content", thus making them serious competitors for daily newspapers and specialised magazines?

    The MEDIA Executive Programme is the brand new exclusive option for CEO-level professionals, which offers you several opportunities to personalise your Expo Experience. Find out about the full MEDIA Executive Programme here.

    Make Mobile Money!
    Digital Arena, Stand 790, Hall 8, Messe Frankfurt

    “There is a new disruptor lurking and that disruptor is mobile.” – These are the words of  an expert - Gordon Borrell during his opening keynote at the Borrell Local Online Advertising Conference in March 2012. Newspaper Companies must not miss the chance to go mobile and to offer mobile to their advertising clients.


    While most of the newsmedia companies still consider a mobile strategy as merely “Build It and They Will Come.” – mobile must also make money now – if only to compensate for losses in print advertising. The advertising summit will focus on examples of profitable mobile strategies.
