PubWest Announces 2011 Conference Theme
(Press Release) Portland, OR—PubWest has announced the theme of PUBWEST 2011: "Beating the Odds: Making Money Making Books." PUBWEST 2011 will emphasize the increasing need for publishers to understand and embrace new publishing formats to prosper in publishing. The conference is scheduled for November 3-5, 2011 at the Green Valley Ranch Resort near Las Vegas, Nevada.
"The 2011 conference will build on the success of 2010's conference"Unleashing Your Publishing Potential," which focused on ebooks, apps, and new ways to monetize book content," said PubWest President Derek Lawrence. "Over the past three years at our conference, we've explored the impact of ebooks, the best ways to make digital content, and new techniques for making and selling print books. The cards may seem stacked against independent book publishers, but this 2011 conference will focus on making a return on both traditional books and new publishing formats. In today's economy, how can publishers make money making books? PUBWEST 2011 will ask the top innovators in publishing for their insights into new ways to succeed in publishing."
PubWest's most recent conferences have featured speakers and panelists like Andrew Savikas of O'Reilly Media's Tools of Change Conference, Dominique Raccah of Sourcebooks, Skip Prichard of Ingram Content Group, Kevin Smokler of BookTour.com, and many more of the leading voices in new format publishing. The PubWest Conference and its Book Industry Trade Show offer a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with the most innovative leaders in publishing, printing and binding, design, copyediting and proofing, and legal services.
PUBWEST 2011 will include:
• Intensive sessions with industry-leading experts
