The publishing industry is now changing faster than ever before due to internet services, digital publishing, free blogging platforms and open access journals. How will this continue to evolve in the future? Will the erosion of traditional publishing methods continue and how will publishing companies adapt? What are the growing entrepreneurial opportunities in this dynamic industry?
We ran our first highly successful event, "Publishing: Evolution, Disruption and the Future" in June 2013 at the University of Edinburgh Business School. The idea was conceived in the pub back in December 2012 and snowballed! The conference attracted over 200 delegates including entrepreneurs, students, investors, freelancers, writers and publishers and was broadcast live on the web. The talks are available to view online and preparations for next year's conference are already underway.
In addition to our main conference in June, we organise satellite events on open access, entrepreneurial approaches to publishing and innovations in the industry. Check our events page for regular updates and join our mailing list to be the first to hear about our events.
