4 great events coming up for media folk

Apologies for the brief hiatus on blog posting, I have been incredibly busy with a range of projects over the past couple of months.

Normal schedule will be resumed shortly but in the meantime I wanted to highlight some great media events that are planned for the coming weeks.

  1. The Frontline Club will be hosting an event tomorrow evening (May 19th at 7 p.m.) covering “Will Apple save the news business? Apps, iPads, paywalls and how to make money from news“. It features Gurtej Sandhu, the digital director of The Times who will discuss News International’s upcoming launch of its paid for online services. Should be fascinating. I’ve only been along to one event at the Frontline (in Paddington, West london) but they are starting to put on some great events under the able direction of Patrick Smith.
  2. Incisive Media’s E-Publishing Innovation Forum takes place next week (May 25-26) in London. This event was launched by my old division of the company and is in its 3rd year.  They’ve got a great line up of speakers and I am particularly looking forward to hearing Simon Waldman talk about his upcoming book Creative Disruption.
  3. In early June I will be heading over to Washington for the Specialised Information Publishers Association (SIPA) conference. Always an inspiring meeting and nice to catch up with my U.S. colleagues in the association.

and finally I wanted to flag up the SIPA UK Congress (opens a PDF) on the 12-13 July in London. This is probably my favourite event of the year and features some amazing speakers, roundtables, discussion forums and the SIPA awards presentation.

I plan to write up coverage of some of these events on this blog and will also post updates on Twitter.
