Provides FPA Members Greater Access to News Releases, Distribution, and Events

In an ongoing effort to better serve the evolving needs of the media, PR Newswire and the Foreign Press Association ("FPA") are pleased to announce a new partnership which will benefit the relationship between those who create, those who write, and those who distribute news.

"This strategic partnership enhances the full media spectrum from content creators to content distributors, and creates a win-win scenario for all the media industry and their clients," said David P. Michaels, President of the Foreign Press Association in the United States.

PR and communications members of FPA will benefit from a lower cost of release distribution and other audience engagement services. These special rates for press release distribution; the news feed; access to PR Newswire for Journalists; and other communications services will be an exclusive membership package for FPA members. The agreement also includes the co-hosting of several special events during the year.

"For almost a century, the FPA has been committed to serving the needs of foreign correspondents living in the United States, during which time the needs and challenges of the media have continued to evolve and change," continued David P. Michaels. "This partnership underscores our commitment to not only provide our members with access to news and newsmakers, but to offering services that reflect the needs of media organizations and communications companies.  This partnership further adds to the value of FPA membership and its existing benefits."

For those who wish to join the Foreign Press Association as a journalist or as an associate member, (i.e. PR, communications, or other media), and to receive these and other exclusive benefits, can apply at www.ForeignPressAssociation.org   ("Join the FPA")

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
