The way industries respond to a crisis determines how they will respond to a disaster in the future. The impact of Covid-19 on publishing has brought with it an existential crisis for many. It has also brought innovation and resilience.
FIPP, as a global trade association with the purpose to improve all aspects of the media content industry through the sharing of knowledge, mutual cooperation, and strategic partnerships, has the obligation to record the impact of this crisis. More importantly, it has the responsibility to record how this industry faces up to its challenges.
Our first Covid-19 report, Publishing during a pandemic: mapping a path through the coronavirus crisis brought together more than 20 representatives from publisher’s association around the world as well as two dozen senior executives from international businesses to share their knowledge and experiences of how Covid-19 impacted the publishing industry in the first weeks of the pandemic.
This report looks beyond the immediate doom and gloom to how the industry stood up to the challenge and is preparing itself for a radically different future.Download
