Germany’s Publishers’ Forum: Bedeviled by Data
"The hallways" is a term you may know well if you’ve spent much time at publishing conferences. It refers to the conversations that happen during coffee breaks, lunch hours, and before and after formal sessions: the networking.
Rüdiger Wischenbart’s Publishers’ Forum here in Berlin is known for its good “hallways,” lots of break time to chat, meet, exchange ideas. And in its 12th annual iteration — this year at the smart DBB Forum Berlin on Friedrichstrasse — a healthy hubbub erupts each time the delegates get together between meeting rooms.
