Digital Book World: The Conference

Digital Book WorldThe annual Digital Book World Conference is designed to help publishers capitalize on their existing assets in the short-term while developing and executing a viable digital strategy for the long-term. It is the only conference specifically for trade publishers, focusing on solutions, not theories; practicality, not punditry.

The Conference isn’t just about strategies, though; it’s also about the community. Because of our focus on consumer publishing, our speakers and attendees represent publishers of all sizes and niches – from HarperCollins, Penguin and Random House, to Chelsea Green, National Geographic and Samhain Publishing – as well as authors, literary agents, booksellers, librarians and other allied professionals, and vendors with an interest in the future of consumer publishing.
