Digital Book World 2010 was the first-ever conference to address the radically changing commercial publishing environment, from near-term challenges to long-term opportunities. Leading publishers of consumer books and their trading partners left the inaugural event armed with ideas and insights to drive new revenues and adapt their business models to the new digital landscape.
DBW 2010 entered the market at the right time – it is still the only conference of its kind by book publishers, specifically for book publishers. Other conferences focus on new technologies as they relate to content creation, but only DBW 2010 spoke directly to book publishers—addressing their immediate needs and future goals to not only survive, but thrive in the changing world of book publishing.
Mike Shatzkin, CEO and founder of The Idea Logical Company was and is the Conference Chair for this event. He organized an Advisory Board of many of the industry’s leading lights to help create a program that directly addresses the needs of today’s publishers: to enable a workable digital strategy—using new technology capabilities to reduce costs and enhance revenues.
Attendees represented multiple disciplines within the industry, including senior management, strategists, editors, agents, marketers, production, eMedia, and digital change professionals. Every player in the book publishing supply chain left enthusiastic from this exclusive event.
