Launch San Francisco
eBooks for Everyone Else
Wednesday, November 2
9:00 – 5:00
StoryWorld Conference + Expo
Parc 55 Wyndham — Union Square
Our producing partners at F+W Media–whom we work with on the successful annual Digital Book World conference–are organizing a new event in San Francisco, the StoryWorld Conference + Expo, focused on the new frontier of transmedia storytelling, gathering participants from across film, publishing, gaming, television and more.
Alongside the Storyworld event, Publishers Launch Conferences will present eBooks for Everyone Else, designed to help agents, small and medium-size publishers and authors learn how to make, distribute and market ebooks effectively–either on their own, or through appropriate vendors, distributors and other third-parties.
The program will include two hours of “speed dating” sessions among leading vendors in the space, providing up-close contact and q&a. At the same time we’ll convene discussion groups led by publishing experts on key areas including marketing, understanding the overall business requirements and costs of professionally publishing books, and choosing and managing outside service providers.
At the New York version of this show, presented in September, attendees gave high marks to the combination of presentations, speed-dating, and expert sessions, plus our high-value 48-page printed program book, which includes an annotated directory of dozens of leading vendors in the field. Among the generous testimonials:

“By far the best digital publishing conference I’ve ever attended and I try to go to all of them in the NYC area. It was a day packed with cutting edge info and insights into the new technologies that are changing traditional publishing in ways we could hardly even imagine four or five years ago. Absolutely exhilarating.”
