FIPP Asia will take place in Wuhan, China, in partnership with the China Periodicals Association and Hubei Administration. The event will bring together the world’s leading magazine media publishers and industry suppliers to explore the latest trends and solutions from the region and beyond. The event will consist of a two day conference (14-15 September) with speakers from around the world and an adjacent expo (14-16 September) attracting some 100,000 people across the 3 days.
FIPP Asia presents an ideal opportunity for publishers, marketers and technologists at senior level operational and strategic positions, network and do actual business. It will be an opportunity to learn from speakers from China and other markets around the world, to network with Chinese and international delegates and to discuss business opportunities in China and beyond. The expo will provide international delegates with an opportunity to first-hand sample media and technology offerings, and discuss market developments in-depth with those in attendance.
The first five speakers for FIPP Asia are; Julie Lee, chief innovation officer, Edipresse; Pete Wootton, managing director, Dennis Digital; Tim Hudson, director, International Licensing and Syndication, Immediate Media Co.; Greg Piechota, senior visiting fellow Reuters Institute for Journalism, Oxford University, and Research Associate, Harvard Business School; Lucy Kueng, strategic advisor, research fellow at Oxford University and non-executive director.
They will be joined by some 30 other speakers from China, the wider Asia region and further afield.
