Book Manufacturing in 2023 and Beyond, Room: TBA
The last 3 years have upended the book manufacturing industry as we once knew it. Labor and supply chain constraints have turned it on its head. Hear from a panel of printers and suppliers as to how the industry has shifted and what that means for publishers.

Concurrent Workshops

How to Read Your Market, Room: TBA
The publishing industry is no stranger to shake-ups: consolidations and mergers, shifts in consumer behavior and purchasing models, and new and ever-evolving technology. In this workshop, experts across the industry discuss the resources and tools they use to navigate change, make critical business decisions, and put their toolkits to the test in real-world role-play scenarios

Publishing & Accessibility, Room: TBA
The work of accessible publishing often falls squarely and solely on the shoulders of production staff. And this is a problem. In order for the needle to be meaningfully moved on accessibility, the work of publishing inclusively must permeate a publishing house, with the meaningful involvement of editors, designers, marketing, and sales being critical pieces of the puzzle.
