Registration is now open for the Disruption in the Publishing Industry conference! The event will be held at the University of Edinburgh on 20th June 2014 and you can buy tickets here: www.edinpubconf.net
On 12th June last year we held our first Edinburgh Publishing Conference entitled “Publishing: Evolution, Disruption & the Future.” The conference was incredibly popular, attracting 200 ticket registrations (+ a waiting list of 50 people) and a further 70 webcast ticket bookings.
All of the talks were recorded and can be viewed on YouTube; for links to the videos please see the conference website. Due to the success of the conference and popular demand, we are holding the 2nd Edinburgh Publishing Conference on 20th June 2014. If you would like to attend then please register here.
Some audience comments from this event:
“An engaging, informative and inspiring event. The quality of contributors was outstanding.”
“That’s the best conference I’ve been to, bar none. All interesting, all relevant, and with an audience from a much wider range of interested parties than is usually the case (congratulations!). I was there partly as a digital library specialist, but also as an author looking for an appropriate publication strategy in the new environment.”
“Brilliant speakers, good range of topics, high level of discussion, well organised and paced event.”
“I found it very inspiring – very glad I attended.”
“Thank you for organising such an interesting and stimulating event.”
“Congratulations to the team for a superb event!”
“An excellent roster of speakers, an experienced knowledgeable audience, many very effective presentations.”
“Very relevant and gave good insights into disruptive markets in publishing.”
