Back in Sydney from MediaXchange in Las Vegas, the team from Pongrass Newspaper Systems – supporting its US distributor Icanon – brought reports of a successful show, despite the troubled economy.
“Even with the downturn in the global economy, the attendees came from all over the US and Latin America,” says general manager Shelley Hando. “The buzz on the floor was back to basics with keen interest in classified booking and pagination plus editorial.”
The Pongrass offering of ‘true web browser based applications’ in a single database was the key attraction at the booth.
