In addition to Congress-wide sessions of interest in B2B and consumer magazine media, there will be particular focus on each when speaker sessions split into two tracks on Day 1 and 2. B2B sessions include:

B2B publishers as marketing consultants
As the old process of ‘selling’ undergoes rapid transformation in B2B markets, publishers need to think of and work differently with their clients to address their needs. It creates a new type of relationship, and new revenue opportunities.

Integrated sales
We look at ways to construct and manage sales forces in the new multi-platform world to maximise revenue opportunities. We also consider the obstacles facing integrated sales teams, and what to do about them.

Data and databases
The beating heart of a B2B business is its database. Speakers will share how their companies have leveraged their databases to create new revenue opportunities.

Extending the brand
B2B (and B2C) publishers describe how they have used established brand names to move into new markets, products and services. How did they decide what to do? And how did they do it?

Ad exchanges and real time bidding
This is a trend affecting B2B companies (and increasingly their B2C cousins). We will explain how they operate and what the benefits to publishers and advertisers are.

Other track sessions over the course of the two days include:
•    Using the power of the audience
•    Content management
