Like so many other industry trade shows, the Publishing Business Conference & Expo has seen many iterations. More than a decade ago it was a shrine to the power -- and profitability -- of print. The show took up three floors at the New York Hilton Hotel showcasing the latest and greatest equipment pressmakers, finishers, and printers had to offer publishers looking to drive their ink-on-paper-based publishing businesses forward.
Publishing Executive Inbox consulted a trio of experts for their insights and analysis on this monumental merger.
In perhaps the worst-kept-secret in Silicon Valley history, Apple today announced the launch of a tablet device it's calling the iPad to an auditorium of press, tech folks and Apple fanboys.

Popular Science has been pursuing its mission to deliver "the future now" for more than 130 years. This past summer, that mission meant creating the magazine's first-ever augmented reality cover
As 2009 comes to a close, flat remains the (not so) new up in magazine publishing. Print advertising continues to take a flogging, online revenue is still an enigma to many publishers, and trade shows/exhibitions and conferences are taking a hit for many as well. One bright spot, however, may be virtual events—which, due to their no-travel-required nature, actually could be benefiting from the dire economic climate.
While most publishing veterans shudder at the thought of print publications being shuttered, the frequency of magazine closures surely seems to be increasing. But while closing down a print edition and keeping the title "alive" in digital form used to be viewed as a last-ditch effort to preserve some form—any form—of a magazine's existence, some publishers actually are thriving with digital-only publications.
Widely regarded as the print industry's most prestigious event, the 2009 Gold Ink Awards received more than 1,000 entries across 45 competitive categories, including Consumer Magazines, Magazine Covers, Magazine Inserts, Specialty Magazines (Web), Trade Magazines (Sheetfed) and Trade Magazines (Web), to name a few. In all, 132 entries were selected for Gold, Silver or Bronze honors.
Testifying in front of a congressional committee is unlikely at the top of most business executives' lists of career goals—especially these days—and yet it was this act that probably best distinguishes Mark W. White's career to date. Standing in front of the U.S. House of Representatives' Subcommittee on Federal Workforce, Postal Service, and the District of Columbia, on Oct. 30, 2007, White delivered a brilliant, surgical argument on behalf of publishers everywhere that forced the various interests to rethink their positions and promoted efficient mailing to benefit both the USPS and publishers alike. It is for contributions like these that White, U.S. News & World Report's vice president of manufacturing and distribution, is a 2009 inductee into the Publishing Executive Hall of Fame.
With publishers and mailers everywhere keeping a cautious eye on the USPS on issues ranging from rate increases to the elimination of Saturday delivery, Publishing Executive Inbox sought out the insights of postal expert
Think back to your first cell phone. If it was clunky, boxy, unlikely to fit in your pocket and even less likely to provide a clear and drop-free phone call, you weren’t alone in your frustrations. Cell phones have come a long way since appearing on “Saved by the Bell” (thanks to Zack Morris) and in vehicles as “car phones.” Today, it’s laughable to think how far the technology has evolved in just 15 years.
In a letter to its membership this week, BPA Worldwide announced a number of rule amendments.
