Events have become a profitable revenue stream for publishers, particularly for those serving B2B audiences. But if events are mismanaged, or don't have the right talent behind them, they can quickly become a revenue drain. Media expert and consultant John French explains how to run an event business right and why media companies shouldn't approach events with a publisher mindset. Instead, publishers need to invest in talent that have experience managing events and understand their intricacies. French is co-founder of French LLC., an advisory firm aimed at helping media executives transforming their companies for a digital- and data-driven world.
