ByKlaus Plaumann"What can microstock agencies do against the saturation of the market?"

This question was asked by Dietmar Frohmann (iStockphoto) during the Agency Workshop. Do we have to develop new products? What kind of Lifestyle do we have to produce for our clients?

Speakers and exhibitors from the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, India or Russia; as well as photographers from Europe to Aserbaijan joined the Expo for interesting discussions. A number of panels and presentations made the two days from 4th to 5th November in Berlin an unmissable get together for the Microstock Community.
