Tom Kilroy, Group Business Development Director for YM Group, hosted a Round Table at the annual PPA Independent Publisher Conference & Awards which took place on Friday November 8 in London. The event brought together independent publishers from across the UK to network, learn, and celebrate the magazine and business media industry. Sessions were a mix of presentations and interactive roundtable discussions specifically tailored for the publications industry. The conference took a strategic look at recent industry changes, what’s to come and how customers steer their business in the right direction.
Tom’s session was one of the most popular roundtables and focussed on `Sustainability and Plastic Alternatives’. Supported by Amy Owens, Public Affairs Executive from the PPA, the session heavily featured on the current `War on Plastic’.
In-depth research, how it affects the publishing industry, upcoming proposed legislation and sustainable, environmentally friendly alternatives were all explored during what was a very participative conversation. YM Group’s award-winning Paper wrap was showcased and Tom explained why being green `needn’t cost the earth’.
