Publishing '13 Are We Falling off the Publishing Cliff?
This program will highlight the tremendous upheavals in the distribution channels, tax laws and other business and legal developments that publishers need to know for continued business vitality. The presentations are short, allowing time for audience to ask pertinent questions. Each speaker provides a PowerPoint handout for future reference. The audience, many of whom have attended for many years, represents a cross section of the industry. The reception following the seminar provides an excellent opportunity to meet the speakers one-on-one and to share ideas with other publishing executives.
