WAN IFRA 2018 DCX Expo

DCX Digital Content Expo Berlin (WAN-IFRA, 2018)

Following the successful launch of the DCX Digital Content Expo exhibitions in 2017, the event will enter the next round from 9 to 11 October 2018 in Berlin. New at the start are partners such as FIPP, world association of magazine media, or Google DNI Innovation Fund.

The DCX Digital Content Expo is the global event for media operators, content strategists and their latest business areas. The event features digital trends for content production, distribution, management and monetisation – at its own conference and with a major line-up of exhibitors and start-ups. The Expo, held concurrently with IFRA World Publishing Expo, offers a combination of an international marketplace and a high-quality conference programme. The Expo will present a wide range of tools and services for publishing and content management: Atex, CCI, gogol medien, InterRed, Lineup Systems, Miles 33, MPP Global, ppi Media, protecmedia and Tecnavia are among the suppliers that have signed up as DCX exhibitors.

Visitors from more than 40 countries have registered already, including media executives from Austria, Germany, Switzerland, USA, the United Kingdom, Canada, Mexico, Finland, Sweden, Argentina and the United Arab Emirates. Based on the strong demand from exhibitors and media specialists, the organisers expect more than 180 exhibitors and 6000 visits.

DCX Start-up Park: Reinventing Publishing and Content Management 

A strong affinity to future technologies, a radical customer focus and the readiness for constant change – media companies and content professionals can learn a lot from start-ups. At the DCX Digital Content Expo‘s Start-up Park they will have the opportunity to try out new tools and gain inspiration for their own company’s innovation activities.

24 young companies will show their products on exhibition stands and in 48 pitches and presentations. Visitors to the DCX can try out their solutions directly at their stands and obtain comprehensive information. The organiser has expanded the area to create sufficient space for networking. The Start-up Park will launch its first speed dating event to link visitors even faster and more accurately with the appropriate innovation providers. In 20-minute presentations and pitches, start-ups will explain their approaches and provide suggestions for innovations.

Manage the flood of information

For the first time the Expo will include an area dedicated to “Content Services”. This term is used to describe solutions and services that companies can use to manage the growing flood of information in a way that is automated, safe and in conformity with the law. The new exhibition area at the DCX Digital Content Expo will bring together all products and services for managing the growing flood of information. In addition, in order to underpin the exhibitors’ offerings for this sector, information on trends in content services will be presented in lectures presented on a special stage.

The exhibition organisers have succeeded in securing high-profile experts as partners for the launch into this new area, in particular Dr. Ulrich Kampffmeyer of PROJECT CONSULT who has already developed the topic of information management for exhibitions such as “DMS Expo” and “IT & Business” as well as for industry associations. Nico Rehmann, Head of the XING Ambassador Group “Content Management” and Director of asioso GmbH, as well as Johannes F. Woll, responsible for the XING Ambassador Groups “Media & Publishing” and “Publishing and Media” and Director of Social Event GmbH, will broaden the programme by including topics for media makers, such as new business models, omni-channel, mobile, smart data or the interconnection of various software systems.

Programme highlights: Expo will present forward thinking minds

The accompanying conference for digital media complements the exhibitors’ offerings with the tracks Content Marketing, Content Management Systems, Apps & Mobile, Digital Readership, Smart Data and Digital Advertising. On the occasion of the new partnership with the network for global magazine media FIPP, President James Hewes will speak in Berlin. FIPP will join forces with DCX Digital Content Expo in a world first for global associations representing newspaper and magazine media.

Michael Golden, President of the World Association of Newspaper Publishers WAN-IFRA (USA), Lisa MacLeod, Head of Digital at Tiso Blackstar (South Africa), D. D. Purkayastha, CEO ABP (India) and Anu Ahola, Board Member of the WAN-IFRA World Printers Forum (Helsinki, Finland), are among this year’s keynote speakers. Ludovic Blecher, Head of DNI Innovation Fund News & Publishers, will present the Google initiative and outstanding projects such as Frames that is about some kind of dynamic data charts that can be embedded in any article or Steady that provides journalists with the technology and marketing tools they need to build a membership base and generate revenue.

Gender Balance in the Media

Media makers and newspapers worldwide report about and for a diverse society. However, a good gender balance is not yet a matter of course – neither in storytelling nor in the composition of the workforce. In the accompanying programme, the DCX Expo will address the lower representation of women, especially in the technical departments of news providers in a top-class and international session. Based on a case study by two leaders from The Times, the top female decision-makers will provide insights into their work. They will discuss strategies, benefits and difficulties of driving up the representation of women in the workplace.

The composition of the panel alone shows that women can set the tone in the technical departments of media providers worldwide: Cindy Taibi, CIO of The New York Times, Fiona Campbell, Director of Digital at BBC News, Dheerja Kaur, Head of Product of The Skimm (focused on news for female millenials), Carolyn Wakulchik, Content & SF Manager at Tech Ladies (a job board and community for women in tech), and Ariane Bernard, Chief Digital Officer of Le Parisien will shape the session together.
