The new trend towards mini tablets (with probably a new iPad Mini coming up soon) is yet another element in the rapidly changing mobile environment for publishers. Even Amazon is reported to enter the smartphone market.
What is your publishing strategy for the mobile devices?
The World Publishing Expo (IFRA Expo & Conference) in Frankfurt offers you inspiration, benchmarking, and showcases important technological trends. Is Windows 8 an operating system that you need to take into account? What impact do the new hi-res displays have on your apps and mobile editions? These and other challenges for publishers will be discussed in Frankfurt.
Programme highlights in the area of mobile and tablet publishing:
- Monday, 29 October, 10.30 h - 13.00 h: Tablet and Mobile Trends. A 2,5 hours session at the Media Port with case studies and technology reports. Learn how international publishers have been implementing their tablet solutions, what were the key learnings, what are the challenges, how do they monetize the apps. Free entry for visitors to the World Publishing Expo.
- Tuesday, 30 October, 10.00 h - 17.00 h: 5th Tablet and App Summit. Alexandra Hardiman, Director Mobile Products at the New York Times and her team are always asking themselves the key question when they are rolling out something new: "How does this make it easier for readers?".
