Digital focus for Frankfurt Book Fair conference

Publishers Launch has announced that its second annual conference will be timed to kick off the Frankfurt Book Fair.

Early-bird pricing is available until the end of July, and this year the ticket price itself has been reduced by hundred euros! (Note that a conference ticket also includes a full Frankfurt Book Fair visitor's badge, a 64-euro value.)

They say their focus remains tracking the emergence of the global eBook trade and helping existing trade publishing entities share data, strategy and innovative ideas for successfully navigating the transition.

This year's informal theme is to showcase Innovative Executives from all over.

Announced speakers already include Rebecca Smart (Osprey) and Charlie Redmayne (Pottermore) from the UK; Marcello Vena (RCS) from Italy; Helmut Pesch (Bastei Lubbe) from Germany; and Dominique Raccah (Sourcebooks), Patricia Arancibia (Barnes & Noble) and Peter Hildick-Smith (Codex) from the US; with many more leaders of equal caliber on deck.
