    1. Digital Book World

    Digital Book World is one of those publishing events that does not need much presentation. It is simply known as the most pre-eminent conference on digital content and digital publishing strategies.

    This year, six breakout tracks – Education Book World, Data Book World, Marketing Book World, Legal Book World, Production Book World, and New Media Book World – will provide opportunities to meet like-minded professionals across every type of publishing and every specific publishing need, and to share the best practices that will help each of these areas move forward.
    Legendary tech journalist Walt Mossberg is the keynote – his career was literally built on the fusion of publishing and technology – while Karen Wickre, who spent 15 years crafting corporate messaging for Google and then Twitter,  will also be speaking. 
    Not to mention Amazon, named as a  Presenting Sponsor of Digital Book World 2018.
