SDM To Stop Print Magazine

By John Honovich, Published on Apr 22, 2020

For nearly 50 years, SDM published a print trade magazine. Now, coronavirus claims its latest victim.

While SDM will continue in digital / web versions as well as print versions at industry events, the flagship print version will stop in the next few months, SDM confirmed to IPVM.

In this note, we examine the move, what it means for SDM and the industry at large.
