“Running a smaller media business such as Housebuilder Media presents me with different challenges to those facing the biggest firms. The Independent Publishers conference is an ideal forum for focusing on those specific challenges, whether they be economic, strategic or business-related. I always come away from the conference with new ideas for developing and managing the HBM business.”
Ben Roskrow, Publishing Director, Housebuilder Media

THE 2018 PPA INDEPENDENT PUBLISHER CONFERENCE & AWARDS WILL TAKE PLACE ON FRIDAY NOVEMBER 2 AT HILTON LONDON BANKSIDE
