The year ahead presents unprecedented challenges – and opportunities – for B2B publishing.
Join the ASBPE Boston Chapter for our annual State of the Industry panel discussion with representatives from B2B sales and editorial as well as a media buyer and a reader.
Because budgets are tight, we decided to change the format of this annual event so that you can attend for free. Instead of preceding the panel discussion with a formal banquet, we'll start off with a social hour. Complimentary refreshments and sandwiches will be served.
David Brousell, editor-in-chief for Managing Automation magazine, will moderate the panel.
Update, Dec. 16, 2008: Panelists for our Jan. 6 meeting at the Wellesley Public Library will include:
- Dr. Steven Vidakovic, associate research fellow in technology and knowledge integration at Pfizer (Managing Automation reader)
- Isabelle Kane, media director, PJA Advertising & Marketing, which has been BtoB magazine's top small agency of the year for three years running.
- Mark. A. Davidson, VP of global marketing, at Wonderware, an Invensys unit
- Tim Reason, editorial director, CFO.com
- Gary Beach, publisher emeritus, CIO magazine
Time: Social hour, 6:00-7:00 p.m.; program begins at 7:00 p.m.

The Wellesley Library is a few minutes from the Turnpike/I-95 interchange and easily accessible from the Wellesley Square stop on the MBTA Framingham-Worcester commuter rail line. The stop is approximately two blocks to the west of the library.
There is a parking lot in back of the library. There is also an underground parking garage exclusively for library users. If you park in the garage, you may access the library by elevator or a staircase that brings you into a lobby area.
