American Business Media and Professional Publishers Association Form Strategic Alliance to Share Expertise and to Cooperate on Advocacy Efforts

American Business Media and Professional Publishers Association entered into an agreement in which the two organizations will form a strategic alliance to share expertise and to cooperate on advocacy efforts that benefit their respective memberships. This alliance is part of a joint effort to help ABM and PPA members accelerate their understanding of and ability to access each other's geographic markets more efficiently as well as increase the organizations' mutual effectiveness in government affairs. ABM and PPA executives signed an agreement whereby the organizations will cooperate to share knowledge and research about each other's market size, dynamics and opportunities as well as help make introductions and foster partnerships that enable more effective international cooperation and/or expansion. Importantly, the two organizations will also join forces in government affairs wherever common goals can be furthered through shared information, synchronized messages, coordinated action, or even common positions and combined resources as appropriate. This initiative is especially urgent as legislative threats to information and media companies' business practices and revenues continue to expand and evolve rapidly across international boundaries. Additionally, each organization will raise awareness of and enable easier access to each other's services within their respective membership communities through selective cross-promotion and mutual discounts on services.
