At the Digiday Publishing Summit Japan in June, publishers gathered to share their success and challenges in expanding into Asian markets. We made the best sessions from that summit available on iTunes and Stitcher through Digiday Live, a podcast series from Digiday that features the best conversations and presentations from the summits we host around the world, all downloadable for easy listening.
In the latest episode of the podcast, Bloomberg Media talks about what it’s coming up against in the region. Parry Ravindranathan is managing director for Bloomberg Media’s business across EMEA and APAC.
