Asia's Leading News Media Event Coming to Bangkok

Publish Asia 2015, the annual Asian newspaper conference from the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA), and the Asian Media Awards 2015, are set to take place in Bangkok, Thailand on 28 to 30 of April.

For its 16th edition, Publish Asia will focus on case studies showing how media companies across the globe are defining and implementing innovative strategies to consolidate their print operations while building up sound foundations to secure digital growth. Over 400 newspaper executives from Asia Pacific and the Middle East are expected to attend the three-day event.

“Following the outstanding success of the World Newspaper Congress, which was held in Bangkok in 2013, Publish Asia’s main industry partners unanimously voted for Thailand as their preferred venue for Publish Asia 2015. Going back to Bangkok was therefore an easy decision to take for WAN-IFRA.” said Pichai Chuensuksawadi, Editor in Chief of Post Publishing and Chairman of WAN-IFRA’s Asian Pacific Committee.

Gilles Demptos, Director Asia of WAN-IFRA, said: "Bangkok remains one of Asia's favourite destinations. The warm support of the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau, Tourism Authority of Thailand and Thai Airways International and the vibrancy of the Thai newspaper industry make it an ideal venue for organising an inspiring and exciting event. Publish Asia will also be an opportunity for Asian news publishers to show solidarity and support in challenging times to their Thai peers."

Publish Asia 2015 will cover the management, advertising and editorial aspects of the newspaper and news publishing business. It will include the following events:

The CEO Conference will look at how the media landscape is changing and how publishers can adapt and define their strategies to ensure a successful future.

The Newsroom Summit, held in cooperation with the World Editors Forum, will tackle the problems and challenges facing Editors, Managing Editors, News Editors, Chief Reporters and all those who are involved in leading and managing newsrooms in a multiple media environment.

The Advertising Summit aims to cover the latest trends that are currently transforming the relationship between media companies, advertisers and agencies.

The Printing Summit will present recent innovations in newspaper production that can contribute to reduce costs or generate new revenue streams from print.

The Expo will showcase the latest technology and service offerings for optimizing newspaper production on print as well as on new media platforms, while one-day learning seminars will offer in-depth insights on specific topics.

Two masterclasses will offer in-depth insights on visual communication and storytelling in the age of the tablet - under the leadership of Mario Garcia - and on how to develop more effective ad sales operations, under the guidance of Eamonn Byrne.

Winners of the much-awaited Asian Media Awards 2015 will be presented during the Asian Media Awards Gala Dinner on 29 April. More information is available at http://www.wan-ifra.org/ama.
