The Yorkshire Post: The Journey from Print to Digital


Event Details


Bernard Ginns will lead this session by giving us a whistlestop tour of the history of the 261 year old Yorkshire Post, one of the oldest newspapers in the country. Then bringing us up to date with the 21st Century, he will share with us the challenges The Yorkshire Post faces with the move to digital and mobile and explain some of the things that they’re doing to tackle those challenges. There will also be time for a short Q&A.

Doors will open at 2pm to start at 2.30pm and will continue for about 45 minutes. This session will lead into the session about The Future of Mobile Advertising and attendees for this session are welcome to attend both.
