Bob Sacks: President, Precision Media Group: Things good in publishing. David Granger has said that everything is possible. Let’s rethink everything that we assume. Role as publishers has not changed connect authors with advertisers.  Need to completely understand your revenue and a lot of publishers don’t.

In print, you need to have a reason to be considered indispensable.  The not so distant future is not so scary.  If we expect consumers to pay we need to give them a reason to pay.  Went through 4 stages of Internet, primitive joy, confusion, abject fear and recently, lucrative understanding.

I attended the first day of the Publishing Business Conference and Expo held at the Marriott Marquis in New York City. This long running event (years ago known as Book Tech Expo), included a wide range of speakers covering the magazine and book publishing industry, around 40 exhibitors, and some 2,500 attendees according to the event organizer North American Publishing Company (NAPCO).

Check out the video highlights from the 2010 Publishing Business Conference & Expo, featuring comments from conference chairs Chris Foster, President & COO, GIE Media; Samir Husni, aka "Mr. Magazine" and founder and director of the Magazine Innovation Center; and Clint Greenleaf, president and CEO, Greenleaf Book Group, as well as from other attendees.
