We live in a post-digital world now, one in which being online and connected is the norm. Data analysts and coders are as much a part of the book business as publishers, editors and booksellers, and consumers are increasingly in the driving seat. The publishing industry is forging its way in this exciting world. There’s growth in many sectors, including Young Adult and Audio publishing; IP is going further across media than ever before, and the retail sector is looking bright.
Quantum considers the challenges and changes, and delves into case studies, discussion, keynotes and panel discussions on the pressing issues, through the vehicle of a stellar cast of speakers.
The conference is co-chaired by Alison Jones from Practical Inspiration Publishing and the new media pioneer and tech commentator Bill Thompson.
