Marketing + Publishing Services Conference & Expo


Identify Your Company’s Operational Needs and Find the Right Publishing Services Partners

Publishing is awash is new digital services, tools, analytics and platforms. The challenge is effectively determining which (if any) of those options address your needs.

The Publishing Services Innovation Expo pairs a curated and pre-screened selection of experienced vendors that your peers and competitors are already using with condensed educational programming to understand the landscape these new digital publishing solutions address. You’ll get useful tools for mapping to your company’s needs, ensuring you find the publishing solutions you need right now, and in the future. 

How it Works:

The day consists of three, 2 ½ hour “mini-conferences” targeted to these  functions:
Each “show” presents 75 minutes of programming and 75 minutes of “ask the experts” meetings in small groups with vendors and industry leaders. Participants rotate through “speed-dating” sessions of their choice. During the 15-minute date, the publishing service suppliers  will provide a summary of their services, answer questions, and collect contact information for future follow up. Experts will answer whatever questions attendees raise at their sessions.
