Join the CBC for Children’s Publishing Goes Digital in NYC
The first big digital conference of the year is just weeks away. Digital Book World Conference & Expo will take place January 23-25 at the Sheraton Hotel & Towers in New York City.
On Monday, January 23, Publishers Launch Conferences will present the first full-day conference devoted the fast-growing digital children’s market. Children’s Publishing Goes Digital will dive deep into the changing the landscape of children’s publishing and will help publishers find ways to react and adapt to stay ahead of the shift.
