Once again digital publishing is centre stage at The Bookseller’s FutureBook 2013 Conference. The conference on the 21st November is set to have over 40 speakers, in 9 sessions with big ideas to stimulate all this feverish discussion and debate; it looks so delicious, I wish I could go!
Speakers are to include:
It is safe to say that there will be very influential people with unique ideas attending this conference. It is these leading names in publishing that will be contributing to the various themes within the convention.
FutureBook’s key themes will surround the important questions that will affect digital publishing in the future:
The next wave for ebooks
Strategies for growth: merge, acquire or pivot?
Harnessing technologies for competitive edge
Partnerships that scale
Overcoming the challenges of non-fiction and children’s content
Library futures: discovery and digitisation
Reaching new audiences and creating fans
Shaping the future workforce
Seven big industry-wide ideas (and then plenary discussion)
With an added bonus of the announcement of the FutureBook innovation award winners. Find the shortlist here.
The ever popular conference’s tickets are already selling fast. So if you want a taste of the Big Ideas, chaired by Stephen Page CEO of Faber Books, where big industry-wide ideas will be proposed and discussed; well then I would book now.
It is set to be an inspiring conference designed to really look into the issues of publishing at this moment and time. I will certainly be keeping a very close eye on it.
