Issue #6 of the bi-weekly StreetLib-TNPS B2B newsletter Publish MENA is hitting subscriber inboxes about now.
This edition was due out last Thursday, but we held it over because so many industry professionals were at Frankfurt, which brings the bonus that we’ve been able to include some of the Arab markets news from Frankfurt in this issue. (Expect more MENA news and insights from Frankfurt in Publish MENA #7 in just under two weeks time!)
Here’s how the contents of Publish MENA #6 stacks up:
