Bloomen at WAN-IFRA World Publishing Expo: Meet us in Berlin, October 9-11, 2018

When the worlds largest association for publications calls, the community gets together: For three days experts from the news industry will gather in Berlin to discuss relevant trends and topics. Among them will be colleagues from Bloomen-partner ATC (Athens Technology Center), exhibiting, presenting and discussing approaches to use blockchain technology for music, photos and video. 

Content-production for digital usage, new distribution and monetization strategies, new technologies, copyright – there is hardly another industry which has to master so many challenges as publishers. While print usually makes the money, digital publishing and distribution is the future – but without a clear business model and usually less revenue than the old model.

Experts, seasoned executives and start-ups will gather in Berlin, attending the WAN-IFRA World Publishing Expo, which  is held from October 9-11, 2018 in Berlin. 193 exhibitors and more than 100 speakers be on site, discussing technology, services and innovative ideas..
