emediaSF Shifts Focus to Consulting

After 14 successful years working closely with publishing associations, we have decided to shift our focus and pursue new opportunities. We have therefore wound down our recurring emediaSF work with the associations – our bi-monthly New Media USA Reports, the Digital Innovators’ Summit and the US Study Tours – and are now concentrating on research and consulting projects for individual media companies and other clients. These projects typically focus on specific areas such as business development, partner search or vertical market analyses and can take the shape of reports, presentations, tours, support for conferences and other events, and more.

We thank our partners at FIPP (Worldwide Magazine Media Association), BDZV (Federation of German Newspaper Publishers) and in particular the VDZ (Association of German Magazine Publishers) for their loyalty and cooperation over the years and wish them continued success.

If you are interested in working with us on individual projects, please get in touch through info@emediasf.com.

The VDZ US Tour 2015 to Washington D.C. and San Francisco / Silicon Valley – the last one led and organized by emediaSF – concluded recently. From September 27 to October 2, 2015, a group of 15 executives, managers and journalists from German media companies met with 15 innovative U.S. organizations.
