"We're excited to be able to offer this important event to the industry—for free, and especially during a time when travel budgets have been cut significantly at many publishing companies. Executives don't even have to leave their desks to attend the sessions and hear from leading experts in digital strategy, or browse the exhibitor booths," says Noelle Skodzinski, Book Business editor-in-chief. "Plus, the networking features built in to the virtual-event platform enable attendees to chat with each other and with the exhibitors, as well as submit questions to many of the speakers, so you're getting many of the benefits of a live event."
