Our first Future of Business Media conference coincided with a burst of major M&A activity, most notably *News Corp-Dow Jones* and Thomson-Reuters. This year, early bird registration for the second FOBM opens during one of the most historic weeks on Wall Street; the repercussions of the last few days — and the last few months — are already being felt across the business media space. More consolidation is coming and, yet, more new products and start-ups are in the pipeline as traditional media continues the transition and digital media moves into the mainstream.

Join us for the Future of Business Media conference at the Edison Ballroom in mid-Manhattan Oct. 28 as we explore the changes already underway — and those yet to come — with leading execs in the industry, including a keynote Q&A with Norman Pearlstine, chief content officer for Bloomberg. Full coverage of last year’s conference at Waldorf=Astoria can be seen on our FOBM channel.
