Digital is dead – readers want print!

Monday, August 20th, 2012

According to Electronics Sourcing, 90% of their readers want the publication in paper format. Is this typical of all publications in the electronics sector? Probably not. Whilst it’s common knowledge that Europeans still have a fondness for “dead tree media”, I suspect that there are several reasons why Electronics Sourcing might have got such an…

UK show sells out!

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

It’s not unfair that the UK has a bad reputation when it comes to shows: British engineers don’t visit as much as their German counterparts and this means exhibitors tend to put in less effort for UK events. The resulting downward spiral is as depressing as it is inevitable. Well perhaps not! The organisers of…

Purchasers buy in to Electronics Sourcing Live

Friday, May 27th, 2011

Electronics Sourcing Live is not a typical trade show. More reminiscent of a matchmaking service for purchasers and suppliers than a conventional trade show, the success of the event depends on the quality and not the quantity of buyers who attend. Mark Leary, organiser of the event, told me that they are delighted with the…

Electronics Sourcing North America completes BPA audit

Monday, January 31st, 2011

There has been a clear move away from audits by publishers in the last couple of years. In addition to the cost saving, digital distribution means that many publishers focus on open rates rather than detailed audits. Whilst open rates are important, they can’t give the demographic information that is provided by an audit. So…

MMG invest in circulation

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

The latest ABC figures are out (ABC issue annual figures, whereas BPA audits are published when the audit is completed), and I’m pleased that many titles continue to invest both in circulation and audits. It’s particularly pleasing when smaller publishers, who don’t have a huge circulation machine like some of the bigger publishers, are able…

Do electronics professionals really want local language?

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

Surely engineers want to read in their local language? Perhaps this received wisdom is under challenge from a recent survey by MMG Publishing, which has driven them to drop the dual-language format of Electronics Sourcing Europe in favour of an entirely English publication. Although the announcement was made last month, I’ve held back on covering…
