BISG is very pleased to announce an agreement with the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) to co-locate Making Information Pay 2014 with the IDPF Digital Book 2014 conference at BookExpo America.
The Making Information Pay Conference will take place on the afternoon of Thursday, May 29 as part of the expanded two-day IDPF Digital Book 2014 conference at BookExpo America. Early Bird registration to IDPF Digital Book 2014 is now open at http://idpf.org/db14 and includes access to Making Information Pay and the BEA exhibit hall.
"Data is increasingly critical to the business and practice of publishing" said IDPF executive director Bill McCoy. "Expanding IDPF Digital Book 2014 to include Making Information Pay will make the flagship digital conference at BookExpo America even more relevant and actionable for attendees."
New data confirms the consolidation of consumer preferences in physical and digital book consumption, with significant variation by genre, subject, and demographics. Making Information Pay dissects these shifting patterns with new information from a range of BISG research including BookStats, the Joint Venture between the Book Industry Study Group (BISG) and the Association of American Publishers (AAP) which provides a comprehensive and trendable report on the size and shape of the US book publishing industry. Industry leaders add invaluable perspective.
For the past ten years, senior executives in operations, sales, and marketing have attended this half-day conference for data-first information and essential direction. Previous conferences have featured a keynote from Hilary Mason, Chief Data Scientist at Bitly and one of Forbes "40 under 40 Ones to Watch;" Kyusik Chung, Vice President of Business Development at Goodreads; and Mike Shatzkin, Founder & CEO, The Idea Logical Company, among many other industry leaders. Current Sponsors of Making Information Pay 2014 include Hachette Book Group, Bowker, and Media Services Group.
