A stronger pulse echoed through the newspaper industry over the past week with a flurry of announcements and new products coming out of Ifra Expo in Hamburg, Germany, and Graph Expo in Chicago.

WAN-Ifra reported a 50 percent increase in Ifra Expo attendance, with some 10,000 visitors, while Graph Expo saw an impressive turnout to the News & Tech-sponsored News Print Pavilion.

Is the worst over for newspapers? Probably not, (as evidenced by the layoff of 35 newsroom slots at USA Today this week and similar cutbacks at McClatchy papers in Kansas City, Mo.; Miami and Charlotte, N.C.) but these signs of life in an industry that has too long been counted for dead prove newspapers and vendors still believe in investing in the industry. And that's half the battle.

You'll see our in-depth coverage of Ifra Expo and Graph Expo, as well as the MPA's annual American Magazine Conference, which also took place in Chicago earlier this week, in the October issue.
