Typically, print is the core of the news media in South Asia. The obvious question on the mind of any publisher is what should be done to strengthen the core, extend the core, and go beyond the core. How can we leverage the adjacencies to maximise the revenue around print?
The other dynamic is digital: Is digital emerging as core, too? Is there a dual core in our industry today? How should publishers invest in new media? What are the correct movies to make? How do we rapidly build audiences? What are some of the revenue streams that are starting to scale up?
The 10th Annual INMA South Asia News Media Conference will focus on trends, strategies, panel discussions, success stories, and sterling leadership lessons to take the way forward to grow revenues, brand and audience of media companies.
Hear from an industry leader share an interesting case study which talks about the power of print in growing his business.

As ad revenues shrink on print, and ad-blockers gain ground on digital, a fundamental change in the ad-funded publisher business model is inevitable. Getting consumers to value your content enough to pay for it is the holy grail in this, and paid digital subscription is where every publisher wants to get to. But in our part of the world, where even print is nearly free, the reality is that paid digital subscription is seen by most publishers as too big a risk. As we get to this cross-roads, and contemplate the future, hear stories from the former chief consumer office of The New York Times that might point the way.

Platforms have been taking over aggregation, distribution and monetisation of digital media content, and basically decoupled advertising from content production. Optimization of content for platforms and relationships with them have become priorities for many media companies. Why do digital platforms engage audiences and advertisers better than products of legacy publishers? What's the right strategy for news publishers: collaboration with platforms, competition, or both? How to maintain exclusive relationship with customers?
