Media and information M&A exploded in 2014, driven largely by the merger of data, media and event assets (media companies such as Asset International and McGraw-Hill Construction received top dollar largely due to their development of rich data products). Deal value is increasing as well, with double digit multiples and high dollar deals. This panel of recent buyers will share why b2b media and information is attractive again, what they’re looking for in the future and why they’re willing to pay significant multiples for the right product mix.

ABM & Information Industry Summit 2015
The Intersection of Information and Technology

The intersection of information and technology has never been greater, creating new business models and opening up new markets. However, that same evolution requires company leaders to continually update their skillset and knowledge of how to operate. Do you know all you need to know about how to run your business and drive organizational value at a time when the models are fundamentally changing? Do you understand the new benchmarks shaping our industry and the tools to help us hit those goals?

ABM/IIS 2015 brings together two long-standing C-level events events: SIIA’s Information Industry Summit and the ABM Annual Conference. This is the only event for the media and information industry to address the issues of running a company from the executive perspective with a focus on

  • Operation Value
  • Managing Different Disciplines
  • Budget
  • Personnel and culture

    The media, business information, marketing and technology worlds come together at ABM/IIS 2015 to unlock what it means to run a media and information business today with a focus on where new revenue is coming from; the new C-suite dashboards that enable executives to monitor (in real time) and grow their businesses; corporate structure and organizational efficiency; what the investors in our marketplace are looking for; creating the culture to be nimble and productive and draw the top new talent that we need, while always bringing the takeaways back to lifting organizational value and driving revenue.
