What is a webcast?
These online, live, interactive webcasts are presented by industry experts and noted consultants. Webcasts last about an hour and include a Q&A session toward the end where listeners can get answers to specific questions from the webcast presenters.

All you need is a computer or iPad. You will be able to view the presentation and listen to the audio over your computer speakers. See below for complete system requirements.

How do I find out about upcoming webcasts?
There are several ways to find out about upcoming webcasts. Check for upcoming webcasts here or sign up for the DBW Daily newsletter. Once you attend a webcast you will be added to our notification list so you will be alerted to upcoming webcasts (and discounts for registering early).

How do I register to attend?
Go to DigitalBookWorld.com, select the webcast for which you wish to register. The free webcast link will take you directly to the GoToWebinar registration page. The $45 webcasts will take you to the Digital Book World store, where you can add the webcast to your cart and check out. On your order confirmation you will find the link to register for the webcast. Click the link, fill out the registration information, mark your calendar, and enjoy the webcast at the appointed hour.

Can I sponsor a webcast?
Sponsored webcasts are a great way to get the message out about your service, equipment, and supplies. Webcasts are meant to be educational, not sales pitches, so you will need to make sure the content meets the informational expectations of our audience. Contact your sales representative for more information.

What if I sign up for a webcast and can’t make it or have computer problems?
Don’t worry if you can’t make the live webcast. Everyone who registers will receive a follow-up email with the webcast download link so you can watch it at your convenience.

Can I view an OnDemand webcast on my PC or Mac?
