Magazine Manufacturing and Production Survey: Analyzing The Results

Thursday, September 22, 2011 - 2:00pm - Register Now

Even with all the focus on digital media businesses, print manufacturing is getting increasingly sophisticated as well. So much is happening in the areas of press automation, color management, supply-chain automation, moving content from platform-to-platform and more, but it's easy to forget what a vital piece of the business this remains—and how fast things are moving in ways that will save your business money and create opportunities. The good news: Publishers aren’t cutting manufacturing and production budgets as much as they did last year. The bad news: They aren’t exactly investing in magazine manufacturing and production, either. Join us as publishers share their results from the automated workflow, with exclusive empirical data directly from our 2011 Manufacturing and Production Survey and a high-level panel of manufacturing executives.
