WAN-IFRA and DistriPress announce strategic merger to strengthen the industry leadership

WAN-IFRA, the World Association of News Publishers, and DistriPress are thrilled to announce their strategic merger in a landmark move poised to reshape the industry landscape. This union combines both associations' strengths and resources and drives innovative initiatives within the industry. .

Following the approval of the General Assembly of Members of both associations in May, DistriPress was formally merged into WAN-IFRA. DistriPress members will have a dedicated community within WAN-IFRA to continue their services uninterrupted, with the added benefit of complete access to the full suite of services of WAN-IFRA. Likewise, the merger will bring distribution expertise and best practices to WAN-IFRA members globally, further enhancing the value of their membership.
"We are incredibly excited about the opportunities this merger brings. With the rapid transformation in the media business, combining the resources of the two organisations will allow us to support the industry in a holistic manner" said Ladina Heimgartner, President of WAN-IFRA. "With the merger, we can provide even greater value to our members and make a more significant impact on the industry as a whole," she added.
"I am very happy that after a brief yet considered courtship we have now paved the way for the merger of DistriPress and WAN-IFRA to form a federation that will serve the full range of interests of our global, varied membership base" said Tyler Brûlé, President of DistriPress. "From publishers to printers, retailers to distributors, we now have the most complete offer for our sector of the media industry and I look forward to meeting the expanded family over the coming months," he added.
