The Knowledge and Information Economy
The Knowledge & Information economy is a large, diverse, global and growing market. It includes businesses that create, provide and distribute content, information, data, news, research, education, and businesses that create events, communities, networks, platforms, technology and other products and services based on that content and information.
Within the Knowledge and Information economy, Informa’s focus is on delivering exhibitions and events that connect specialist communities, scholarly and research-led content for academics, and information services for businesses and professionals in specific vertical markets.
