Cross Media in the UK - will the issues wait till September 2012 #crossmedialive

The Cross Media site has been updated to show the first event in September 2012. I heard about this through LinkedIn on the IPEX World group but have now checked the public site.

Cross Media Live will be at the Business Design Centre in Islington, where Adobe Live happened on a couple of occasions. My guess is that Adobe attend fewer actual events as time moves on. Things could be very different in September 2012.

The event is intended for "design, marketing, brand owners and print professionals to meet and discuss key industry issues and the latest technology trends."

At IPEX issues included the future of business to business publishing in print. Will Printweek have moved entirely online by next year? Or if this is a bit fanciful, will there be a clear statement of Haymarket strategy?

There are so many possible views on the likely dates for technology developments. I think this is a significant month, May 2011, when the organisers of IPEX decided on a Cross Media event without "heavy metal" as suitable for London.

By the way, I am also interested in the canal walk from Regent's Park to the Olympic Site. To find the way, just head east. Except for the tricky bit where there is a tunnel from King's Cross to Angel.  There is a need for an A4 sheet with a clear map. Help please. One route is very close to the Business design Centre. Early in 2012 would be ok but this cannot wait till September.
