Digital Book World 2018 headed to London Book Fair

London Book Fair

Digital Book World’s team will be in London for the London Book Fair, speaking with the people and companies that will be in the United States this fall for Digital Book World 2018 as speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors. London Book Fair 2018 is being held from 9 to 12 April.

Digital Book World 2018 is the gathering of the wide world of publishing, which includes trade publishing, educational publishing, corporate publishing, independent publishing, all the companies creating tools, products and services for publishing, and individuals creating content on their own.

​Attendance at Digital Book World 2018 is expected to double over what it was in 2017. Some of the key participants include names like Amazon, Walt Mossberg, Bill Kasdorf, Simon & Schuster, Pamela Paul of The New York Times Book Review, Inclusive Publishing, Data Guy, Scribd, Duke University Press, Karen Wickre, Southwest Airlines and many others who are already part of Digital Book World 2018 this fall.

Digital Book World 2018 takes place from 2 to 4 October at the Music City Center, located in Nashville, Tennessee.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
