Michael Cader and Mike Shatzkin will partner up to produce Publishers Launch Conferences, a series of industry educational events. The Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) and Constellation from the Perseus Books Group have signed on as global sponsors.

The first event, “eBooks Go Global,” will be held in conjunction with this year’s Book Expo America in New York City. The event will focus on eBook business in the United States and how international publishers can compete with North American companies.

Shatzkin gave this quote in the release: “We both see major global opportunities for publishers and booksellers in all languages, regardless of the adoption of digital platforms so far in any particular country. One part of what we’re doing is to help English-language publishers capitalize on these growth markets, and another part is to help others get the greatest value they can from what US and U.K. publishers have already learned.”
