Magazine trade body the Periodical Publishers Association is changing its name to the Professional Publishers Association.
The organisation, which will continue to operate under the commonly used acronym “PPA”, said the change had been made to “acknowledge the fact that its members are continuing to expand their operations onto an increasing variety of platforms”.
Barry McIlheney, chief executive of the PPA, said: “Today’s PPA members are professional publishers of immersive, high-quality content.
“In recent years their businesses have changed dramatically as they deliver this content across an increasing variety of platforms.
“We have changed our name to acknowledge this development, and to reflect our commitment to serving our members’ needs and representing their interests as their businesses continue to evolve.”
