New tools and technologies have brought both dramatic changes and exceptional opportunities to the publishing industry. TOC is where practitioners and executives from publishing and the tech arena come together to navigate publishing’s ongoing transformation. Join them at TOC 2012 as they explore new ideas and share what they’ve learned from their successes and failures, with deeply practical guidance that will help you and your business change/forward/fast with confidence.
If you want to go deep into critical issues in publishing today, mix and mingle with some of the brightest minds in publishing, and get a close-up look at all the latest gadgets and readers, TOC is the place to be. With so much intelligence amassed in one location, we’ve organized the sessions into three tracks (Manage, Make, Market) to make it easy to find the sessions that will supercharge your work life. Chart your own path: stick to one track or dip into sessions in all three.
