I don’t travel much, so I’m extra happy that the publishing industry (where most of our customers are from) is going to meet in our home town this year: The WAN-IFRA World Publishing Expo 2015 (Twitter: #WPE15) takes place in Hamburg, Germany from October 5-7.
Our company Digital Collections is exhibiting (booth 1.415), but I hope not to spend too much time at the booth because I want to attend the International Newsroom Summit (Twitter: #Newsroom15) that takes place on Monday October 5th as part of the Expo.
I’m especially looking forward to the Newsroom Summit session “Finding Relevant News Faster” with Michael Steidl (IPTC), Dave Compton (Thomson Reuters) and Robert Schmidt-Nia (dpa mediatechnology). Read their excellent “sneak preview” blog post Tags and the secrets to managing information flows into your newsroom; they’ll talk about state-of-the-art news metadata and Linked Data. The “Reimagining your archive” talk sounds interesting as well, see the Newsroom Summit programme.
Will you be in Hamburg as well? Get in touch if you want to meet!
