SPECIALIST MEDIA SHOW
Why exhibit at the Specialist Media Show?
There are over 1000 specialist media businesses in the UK: print and digital publishers and event organisers. Many are independently owned and based outside London.
Most don't attend London publishing and media events and aren't PPA members.
They work in different markets but all face the same challenges; how to increase the efficiency of their core business and take advantage of the opportunities created by new media technology with limited skills and resources. All are searching for the perfect balance between print, digital media and events for their specialist market.
They value learning from the experiences of their peers - other independent specialist media businesses who don't have access to large budgets or in-house specialists.
They increasingly need to outsource key functions and work with experts in print, paper, distribution, web design, email marketing, SEO & PPC, media sales, databases, digital editions, mobile apps, workflow solutions, video production, event organisation, ticketing........
They are spread across the UK and rarely get together. The Specialist Media Show is a unique opportunity to meet their peers, share ideas and tips, learn about new opportunities and grow their business. Visitors know that all the exhibitors will be relevant to their business.
Who attended in 2012?

What do exhibitors say about the show?
"MagazineCloner.com attends many Publishing shows each year both in Europe and beyond, but yet again the Specialist Media Show is our most productive. In fact, I had a meeting this morning with a major publisher as a direct result of exhibiting and they have just signed on the dotted line!
Ian Remmer, Sales Director, Magazine Cloner
"The show was very successful for us. We got some extremely good leads with a couple looking like they'll produce business pretty soon."

'SMS 2011 gave us the opportunity to talk to key players about how, when it comes to the legals, it pays to work with lawyers who understand and have real experience of the sector. It's not always easy to fix up those discussions - SMS 2011 provided a great vehicle for us to get our message across.'
David Woods, Director and Media Specialist, Greenwoods Solicitors LLP
"Well done to all the team on an impressive and well organised show. With the impressive line-up of speakers, and the carefully targeted audience, this show is sure to be a success for us for years to come. We're looking forward to next year."

'We found the SMS show to be a perfect stage for us to showcase our wide range of specialist media solutions and came away having made a number of very good connections. We particularly like the fact that all the visitors we met were all what we would consider perfect prospective clients which was good for us as an exhibitor and of course the visitors. A genuinely successful event for Silvertoad!'
