Digital Book World is the annual gathering of the wide world of publishing.
After a six-year hiatus, DBW will return to its original time of mid-January, and original location in downtown New York City.
Trade publishing, academic publishing, independent publishing, corporate publishing, and more come together for a three-day exploration of voice/AI, audiobooks, NFTs, ebooks, marketing best practices, discussion of politics in publishing, and much more.
If you need assistance converting a COVID-cancelled DBW conference credit from 2020 or 2021 toward Digital Book World 2023, please contact us at DBW@ScorePublishing.us.
DBW Global is the large Digital Book World virtual event taking place Friday, September 17, in recognition of Digital Book World 2021 not taking place in person as planned in Nashville September 13-14.
This will be a one-day virtual event highlighting the best and brightest people and companies working at the intersection of publishing and technology.
