BOSTON, May 2, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IDEA MEDIA's efforts to bring existing and emerging media markets together for mutual benefit will culminate at the EuraMedia 2012 summit, where Russian and western media companies will have the opportunity to explore co-branding possibilities and discuss industry trends. The impressive attendee list includes but is not limited to: Interfax, Gazeta.ru, Expert.ru, Business FM on the Russian side, with the BBC, Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg News, The New York Times and The Washington Post representing western media companies.
According to Matthew Goldstein, president of conference facilitator IDEA MEDIA, "Partnering opportunities abound between Russian and western media corporations, but until EuraMedia 2012, there was no venue that brought these companies together and created an environment in which candid discussions could take place. The goal of this summit is to open the door to collaboration and allow for the creation of lasting relationships between these critical influencers of both the Russian and western media landscapes."
Russian participants in the summit cover the entire spectrum of modern media properties. Interfax is the oldest non-governmental news agency in Russia. With its impeccable reputation, Interfax is cited in news stories around the world, ranging from breaking news to sports to entertainment. Company representatives have expressed their happiness regarding participation in EuraMedia 2012 and the opportunity to meet with other key industry players to discuss recent developments and future plans.
Gazeta.ru has made a name for itself as one of the most critical newspapers in Russia, giving voice to diverse viewpoints not typically covered by Russian media. "For Gazeta.ru, participation in the EuraMedia Summit is a perfect chance to tell about our experience in implementing modern media technologies," says Mikhail Kotov, editor-in-chief of Gazeta.ru. "We are also interested in communication with other successful and influential companies. We hope to exchange experience with Russian and American colleagues and help to facilitate a broader understanding of new media trends."
Business FM is the first and only business radio station in Russia. The audience of Business FM is keen on receiving the hottest information from the source and gaining a complete picture of the latest business trends. In addition to stations in Moscow and St. Petersburg, it also boasts a large online audience. Expert.ru, an online, print and TV magazine covering politics, finance and culture, among other topics of interest to Russians everywhere, will also be in attendance.
These elite Russian media companies will be joined by some of the most well-respected names in western media, including the BBC, Bloomberg News, The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and New York Times.
