Exhibit Hall Escapee

I mentioned in a previous post that several companies were back on the exhibit floor. One is conspicuously absent — Factiva . Several people have mentioned how surprised they are that there’s no Factiva presence. In earlier days, Factiva had a prime spot in the front of the exhibition hall. The last two years the company had a smaller stand and moved to the Content Management portion of the hall. A Factiva representative told me last week that they’d decided not to exhibit this year because they had other ways of reaching customers that they felt were more cost-effective.

Although Factiva is not here, the Wall Street Journal is, in its new tabloid-style format. Subscribers to the European edition of the Wall Street Journal are also automatically subscribed to wsj.com and many stories in the printed paper indicate that a fuller version is available online. Subscribers to wsj.com from outside Europe have the same access.

As, of course, do Factiva subscribers.
