This year, IFRA India 2008 will not host the mini expo that was part of the conferences in the earlier years. Instead, IFRA Expo India would be held in 2009, coinciding with next year’s IFRA India 2009 Conference.
To accommodate supplier interest, an interesting list of sponsorships, limited number of meeting cubicles as well as a pre-Conference workshop on editorial systems is being planned. A workshop on ‘Reorganising the mutimedia newsroom’ is also on the cards. The two-day conference will conclude on September 18.
