Riding the waves of news media disruption

Introduction to Event

See you in Bangkok next year!

Save the dates:
April 28 - 30, 2015
Bangkok, Thailand


New technologies constantly compel us to re-invent the way we live, work, interact, and play… And the rate of change is increasing exponentially! News media companies are plunged into the midst of this perfect storm as the digital revolution directly affects the way content is consumed, produced, distributed and monetized on a growing variety of media platforms.


Over 400 media executives from 29 countries gathered in Hong Kong on April 23 to 25 and shared key insights for efficiently adapting their processes and business models to these changes in order to remain relevant and profitable.

Summaries of some presentations are available on the Publish Asia blog!

All presentation slides are available for download for the exclusive benefit of conference's participants.

Some pictures of the conference will be released soon on this website.
