Focal Attractions Becomes Management Partner of Publishers Australia

Focal AttractionsA message from Publishers Australia Chairman, Geoff Hird.

I am delighted to announce the appointment of publishing and events business Focal Attractions as Publishers Australia’s management partner with a brief to grow our events portfolio and raise the profile of the publishing industry nationally.

Focal is a long-standing member of the association and the owner of media and marketing website Mumbrella, business prospecting tool The Source, events including Mumbrella360, CommsCon and the festival of branded entertainment, and a training division including Digital School and Social Media Academy.

We all know it’s a tough time to be in publishing, so it’s more important than ever that Publishers Australia delivers value to members via networking, training and events. We believe Focal is well placed to help us deliver that value. Their support will allow us to run the association more efficiently and return more benefits to you.

Plans for a nationwide events program and an updated Excellence Awards will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
