    PDLN Conference 2019 - Berlin

  • About PDLN and its conference

    The PDLN conference is an invitation only event for senior news licensing organisation executives from PDLN members, other licensing bodies and media monitoring and evaluation businesses. We meet in an informal setting, numbers are limited to around 60, allowing excellent networking and interactive discussion on topics of interest including market developments, legal changes and how technology is driving business change. Just as important it will allow delegates time and space to share ideas, developments and experiences from around the world.

     

    The 2019 PDLN Berlin Conference’s motto is „Creative Destruction“. It is about the rapid changes in the publishing and media monitoring industry, the fight of the creators and distributors to control content and about disruptive technologies and innovations in the market. We will have speakers giving answers to questions like what new structures and partnerships we might see in the years ahead and how successful media companies of the future may look like.

     

    PDLN aims to protect and promote the interest of publishers in media monitoring services. Its members seek to encourage the development of simple, efficient market solutions to the supply and use of press information internationally. PDLN works to share best practice in licensing and supply and to create forums for content owners and users to come together to solve the challenges of improving these services. The Press Database and Licensing Network (PDLN) is an association representing organisations owned or controlled by publishers who license or supply newspaper, magazine and website material for media monitoring, press cutting and press review services. PDLN was founded in 2008 and has grown rapidly. It now has 25 members in 22 countries, including the Asian rim, Africa, America and Europe
