Markt&Technik to publish electronica 2014 show daily

May 31st, 2014

markt-technik-mastheadIt’s good to hear that, yet again, Markt&Technik will publish a show daily during electronica. The title will have a 50/50 split between English and German articles, and a total distribution of 60,000 copies, including being placed at train stations and hotels, as well as within the show ground. There will also be an editorial office at electronica, helping journalists to quickly write about the news from the show (although smart marketers will make sure they pitch their stories some time in advance).

Form more information, visit the media section of the Elektroniknet site.

“Markt&Technik” to publish productronica 2013 official show daily

April 30th, 2013

The team at Markt&Technik do such a great job of publishing show dailies for the major exhibitions. So it’s easy to forget how difficult it is to produce a new issue every day, especially when the journalists have crazy days filled with briefings from exhibitors. As it happens every year, perhaps it’s not “news” that the team will be publishing the show daily for 2013, but I for one really appreciate the work that the team at Weka – and the journalists in particular – put in to publishing these show dailies. Thanks!

La Elfa 2012 shows Markt &Technik and Elektronik maintain leadership

October 31st, 2012

The results of the recent La Elfa study are out. Some of the interesting findings are:

Social media is still having little impact on engineers. Only 6.5% use Facebook in their work, and perhaps surprisingly just 1.8% of engineers use twitter. Use of LinkedIn is over 10%, and around 27% of engineers use XING, which still remains strong in Germany.

Trade magazines remain the most popular source of information – in Germany they even out-perform manufactures” websites – and smartphone apps have overtaken social networks when it comes to engineers finding information.

43% of engineers and 53% of managers read publications at home, and around 7% read on the way to work: the use of public transport continues to be a significant difference between Europe and most of the USA.

The relative ranking of the publications in Germany remains fairly static, with M&T and Elektronik the first choices for news and technical articles respectively, whilst the Weka titles and Elektronik Praxis maintain their lead on other magazines.

German advertising recovered in 2010

January 21st, 2011

Good news for publishers in Germany – the latest mediaskop advertising statistics research, undertaken by Vertriebsunion Meynen, shows a 9.2% year-on-year increase in 2010.
Unsurprisingly Markt&Technik, Germany’s weekly publication, saw the biggest increase and retains the largest market share. Second place continues to be a battle between Elektronik and Elektronikpraxis, with Elektronik sneaking into the number 2 slot last year.

Markt & Technik to publish electronica show daily

May 14th, 2010

Another electronica year, and unsurprisingly M&T will again publish the official show daily. Although this isn’t really a surprise, the facts are impressive: four issues, an editorial team of 16, and a total of more than 60,000 copies – this is a huge undertaking! Perhaps the idea of a print publication for a physical trade show is becoming a little antiquated, but with trade show attendance in Germany remaining strong, and half the content of the show daily in English for international visitors, I’d expect the show daily to be an editorial and commercial success again.

M&T editor wins VDE Prize

February 19th, 2010

Corinne Schindlbeck, the Markt&Technik who covers management & careers, has been awarded the Media Prize Technology by the VDE Südbayern, Germany. It’s great to see electronics industry bodies award prizes to journalists, and as an engineer I am particularly pleased that the prize went to someone who is encouraging young people to choose engineering as a career. Congratulations Corinne!
