The role of EBP is even more important in a time when European Union, and the principles on which it was founded, are losing momentum. Current challenges for business media are remarkably different today but not less difficult than in 1962. Business climate is rather discouraging. Most of traditional advertisers in business newspapers are facing a serious crisis. At the same time, a growing concentration of banks and corporations potentially threatens the competition and with it everything that free press stands for.
Besides through press the information today are spread through TV, radio, web, mobile devices, tablets and social networks. Quality journalism requires continuous investment however the new media lower the entry barriers and open the opportunity for new players. Despite the fact that everybody can be a journalist today the EBP must aim for higher professional standards in publishing industry. EBP is a network of professionals that interact continuously in order to share ideas, look for new opportunities or just seek second opinions on how to solve strategic or operational problems.
Our door is open to new members, from print business publications to websites and business TV or radio channels.
