On Behalf of Publishers Lunch

Living In A Digital Book World

The first big digital conference of the year is just weeks away and, as the headlines confirm, there will be plenty to discuss and learn about.

The show opens with a CEO's view of the future from View of the Future Redux: 

John Ingram, Dominique Raccah at Sourcebooks. John Donatich at Yale University Press, and Ellen Archer at Hyperion (preview her thoughts here: and closes at the now-traditional look at what we expect to happen within the next year with 

Evan Schnittman at Bloomsbury; Mark Allin at Wiley; Clare Peeters at Perseus; and Mike Shatzkin.

In between you'll hear individual presentations from the major etailers--Russ Grandinetti at Amazon; Theresa Horner at BN; Michael Tamblyn at Kobo--and the first conference presentation from new Bookish ceo Carolyn Marks.

There's futurist and author David Houle, and Oren Teicher from the ABA and booksellers from Politics and Prose and RJ Julia on The Bookstore Renaissance and new bookselling business model experiments underway. For original research, there will be new presentations from James Mcquivey at Forrester; Kelly Gallagher at Bowker PubTrack; Giovanni Bonfanti at A.T. Kearney; and Jack McKeown and Tom Thompson at Verso.

Plus five vertical tracks offer experts from throughout the publishing industry and beyond on technology, marketing, social media, ebook basics, the changing role of agents, global markets, illustrated books, libraries and more.

DBW has grown into a three-day extravaganza--beginning with our own Publishers Launch Conference going deep into the fast-growing digital children's market now that color devices have taken hold.

Best of all, since we are co-presenters of DBW, Publishers Lunch readers can still take advantage of a big discount on tickets--the best available price on the market. Use our code PUBLUNCH12 and you will save $470 off the full conference ticket price.

Enroll for Monday's Children's Publishing Goes Digital at the same time and you'll save another $135 on the bundle. 

There's always a big wave of registrations in January, and the show is headed towards a complete sellout, so click through now if you plan to join us.
