Digital Book World Starts Tomorrow


The Digital Book World conference in New York starts tomorrow and goes through Wednesday. Co-sponsorted by F+W Media and Publishers Lunch, the conference features a ton of panels and talks about the changing digital book business.

Editors from eBookNewser and GalleyCat will be in attendance and hope to see you there, if you’re going. Here’s the complete schedule as a PDF. We’re particularly looking forward to the introduction by the ever-provocative Mike Shatzkin and eBook Tipping Point panel on Wednesday.

Publishing can really use these kinds of conferences now, if only to stoke a sense of healthy competition and to see who has been doing their homework. Of course, this conference will be going on during the Apple tablet announcement, so a certain amount of attention on Wednesday may be focused elsewhere. Follow the conference on Twitter using the hashtag #DBW.

[Full disclosure: DBW has advertised on this blog, though that ain't why we're covering it. Harumph.]
