The SIIA (Software & Information Industry Association) has launched a European Publishers Council. The Council will determine the direction of SIIA’s European conference agendas, produce more local European events and disseminate white papers.
SIIA has produced Information Industry Summits in the U.S. for the past six years. The next annual meeting, designed for information industry leaders, is to be held January 30-31, 2008 in New York City. European activity is more recent with Global Information Industry Summits so far held in Amsterdam (2006) and Berlin (2007).
Ed Keating, Vice President Content Division announced that the next Global meeting will be in London September 9-11 2008 at the Royal Garden Hotel.
Interested parties (content publishers and creators, aggregators and technology-enablers) should contact Ed Keating at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on joining the council or attending the next meeting.
