A debate on one of the key strategic issues facing the newspaper industry will be held in November by the Stationers’ Livery Company, as part of its annual programme of events.
Recent circulation figures indicate a year-on-year decline in the broadsheet sector. The only exceptions are The Independent and The Times, but is this due to their introduction of the new compact size? Editors of The Times, The Guardian, The Independent and Metro will debate the pros and cons of going tabloid in an event organised by the Stationers’ Company. The panel of Robert Thomson, Simon Kelner, Alan Rusbridger and Kenny Campbell will be chaired by the BBC presenter Jenni Murray.
The debate will take place at 6pm on Monday 8 November at Stationers’ Hall, London Tickets, which cost £20 each (incl VAT), are available from The Trade and Industry Forum, Stationers’ Hall, Ave Maria Lane, London EC4M 7DD. Telephone 020 7246 0988, email firstname.lastname@example.org. The event is sponsored by Fujifilm Graphic Systems, Stora Enso and Sun Chemical.
