Digital Book World 2019

Registrations are now open for the most anticipated publishing event of the year, Digital Book World 2019, which is scheduled from 10-12 September 2019 at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel, located in the heart of Nashville, Tennessee. Pre-conference workshops will be available for all paid attendees, and is scheduled for 9 September 2019 at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel. Registrations before 31 December 2018 will have the advantage of super early bird savings.

Tickets to Digital Book World 2019, along with discounted rooms within the DBW 2019 room block at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel, are limited in number. The hotel is a flagship one for the city of Nashville, located less than 2 miles from downtown and right across the street from Vanderbilt University, in the heart of Midtown.

For the full-time employee of a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (or the international equivalent), there is 40% discount and the discount code is NONPROFIT2019. Documentation proving the employment with said non-profit as well as documentation of the organization’s non-profit status will be required upon arriving at Digital Book World 2019. Employees of local, state, or federal government located within the United States or US territories can also use this code to save 40%.

For the full-time educator or full-time student at an accredited academic institution within the US or abroad, discount is 60% on the pass and the discount code is EDUCATOR2019 or STUDENT2019. Librarians, or full-time or part-time staff of libraries, may also use these discount codes to save 60%. Documentation proving the employment or enrollment with said academic institution will be required upon arriving.

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.
