Tablets, a Second Life for Newspapers
Friday, December 3

Overview: The “Tablets, a Second Life for Newspapers” seminar follows up to the successful industry-first Oxford Tablet Summit in May 2010 by taking a practical case-based exploration of how tablets can represent a second life for newspapers and magazines. This seminar is held in cooperation with Innovation Media Consulting Group and under the auspices of the Nieman Foundation for Journalism.

Takeaways: Synthesized lessons on how consumers are utilizing tablets, how news companies are generating revenue from advertisers and readers, and what will happen in this space in 2011-2012.
