Tom spoke to Informa executives outside London yesterday. Here's how the information specialties company describes itself in the 2007 Annual Report:
Informa provides specialist, high value information to the global Academic & Scientific, Professional, and Commercial markets via Publishing, Events and Performance Improvement.
At the heart of every Informa product and service is research-based, proprietary information for a highly targeted expert audience. Informa publishes approximately 2,500 subscription based products and services delivered both electronically and in hardcopy, and 45,000 books.
Each year Informa produces over 12,000 events around the world powered by a marketing database of over 20 million contacts. We have an extensive portfolio of prominent brands including Lloyd's List, Routledge, Taylor & Francis, IIR, IBC, AchieveGlobal, ESI, Euroforum and Datamonitor. Informa operates in over 80 countries, employing more than 10,000 people.
If you would like to download the PPT file for the event, you can do so here: Informa, London. And if you were there, we'd love to hear from you in our comments.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
