Get the eReading skinny (and more) at Mediabistro.com’s eBook Summit
Someone once famously coined the phrase, “The times they are a-changin’”, and while I’m pretty sure that someone didn’t really have the publishing industry in mind, I couldn’t really think of anything more apropos in describing the purpose of Mediabistro.com’s upcoming eBook Summit.
On December 15-16 at the New Yorker Hotel in New York City, this inaugural event will play host to the who’s who in the digital publishing realm including our very own Director of Strategic Development, Igor Smirnoff.
So why all the hype? Well, as you’ve undoubtedly noticed, there have been some significant transformations in the world of publishing over the last several years – from the perspective of content providers and publishers. I don’t think I’d be going out on a limb suggesting that historically, the industry has worked around a fairly rigid model where revenue streams and business operations were more clearly defined. On the consumer end of the spectrum, individuals knew what they were getting, but were fairly limited in how they could get it.
Ahh, how the times have changed. It seems like almost daily, we’re hearing of new, exciting and more innovative ways of getting content out to the masses. More and more, publishers are leveraging technological innovations such as PressDisplay and PressReader to help drive their businesses and ultimately, reshape the industry. Those who embrace this digital future will discover fantastic opportunities to expand their circulation, develop new revenue streams, and grow their businesses, and really, that’s what it’s all about.
Similar to Dylan’s 60s mantra, the eBook Summit will see Igor discussing how times are indeed changing – as they relate to an eReading market that’s expanding to beyond just books, and, NewspaperDirect’s front line role within an exciting industry transformation. His presentation can be heard during the Across Platforms: Storytelling, From Page to Screen session held on day one of the summit, between 10:30 – 11:30 am. This high profile panel session will take a look at linking one platform to another, telling a story in various media formats and uncovering new sources of revenue.
