Top 8 Tweets from the Digital Book Printing Conference
If you happened across Book Business's Twitter feed yesterday, you may have noticed that our team was reporting live from the Digital Book Printing Conference in New York City. The first event of its kind, the conference -- or #digibook as it's known on Twitter -- brought together over 100 publishers, printers, and equipment suppliers for a full day of education and networking aimed at taking strategic advantage of digital printing. As Marco Boer, vice president of IT Strategies, summed up in his closing remarks, "There is a great deal of excitement, opportunity, and commitment to investing in digital printing across these industries."
Expect more in-depth coverage of the Digital Book Printing Conference to come soon, but for now here's a look at the event via a sampling of yesterday's top tweets.
