  • The wearable revolution on our doorstep
Should news be based on where I am, what I’m doing, how I’m feeling? More than ever before, wearable devices are bringing information closer to the consumers. Learn and experiment with writing and publishing news in different forms onto the wearable devices. Check out a first edition of this workshop held at the German Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung. This 3-hour intense workshop is offered by WAN-IFRA´s Global Alliance for Media Innovation in collaboration with the Stibo Accelerator. – Fee: 90€ – book your seat, limited places available.
  • Data Privacy – An Issue for Our Time

Is your news brand more trustworthy than Google? To mark the launch of our Data Privacy report in conjunction with TRUSTe, we discuss the results of our comprehensive survey into attitudes and approaches to data privacy in news publishing. As you move into paid relationships with your digital readers, how can you maintain trust while maximising revenue? Is there space for an industry-wide initiative – some sort of badge of data privacy excellence? – This is a free workshop for Digital Media Europe attendees.

  • iBeacons – and how news media advertising can win

Simple fact: the more you know about your readers the better you can offer premium advertising. Knowing exactly what your readers are interested in and pairing this with where they are in space and time opens up endless possibilities for targeted and entertaining advertising. iBeacons is one way of making this a reality. The technology is not new and almost all smart phones support iBeacon functionality. So why is iBeacon advertising still a novelty for the few publishers with a significant innovation budget?It does not have to be!
We would like to give you first hand experience to prove it. This 3-hour intense workshop is offered by WAN-IFRA´s Global Alliance for Media Innovation in collaboration with the Stibo Accelerator. – Fee: 90€ – book your seat, limited places available.

  • 5 steps to turning social readers into subscribers

How publishers should plan their social strategy?
