The Future of Creativity and Content
Speaker: Scott Braut, Head of Content, Digital Media

15:45 to 16:45   German Client Panel  

Germany is Europe’s largest single stock photo market. Despite a steady decline in overall print runs, there are still more than 1.000 newspapers and magazines being sold at countless newsstands. Despite these impressive numbers, times are getting tougher for photo agencies. Picture buyers are increasingly outsourcing services while observing their budgets in further decline. What are the services that clients expect from their image suppliers? What are the trends that photo agencies shouldn’t miss? What distinguishes those agencies that will survive the next chapter of market transformation? Meet some of the most influential German picture buyers on stage. The seminar is moderated by Martin Skultety. More info…
