Just 10 days before (about) 500 publishers and professionals of German B2B Media meet up in Essen (Germany) and discuss about "Successful solutions for B2B markets communication". Have you registered yet?
On the agenda of the Kongress der Deutschen Fachpresse 2014 there are two speakers from UK - looking over the fence / the English Channel - which might be of interest to you:
Joe Hames, PPA's Business Media Manager (since April 2011)
He offers - on behalf of PPA UK - a snapshot on the State of Business Media UK: 2014
If you like to grasp the optimisms members of the UK PPA Business Board have about the State of the UK Business Information Sector and the companies they represent, listen to this video clip (December 2013)
The second speaker from UK is Adrian Barrick @adrianbarrick, since November 2012 UBM's Chief Content Officer. At the congress he speaks about UBM plan and success in 'Building valuable B2B communities'.
