Publishers Launch Conferences presents educational events for trade publishing professionals around the world in conjunction with leading organizations in all markets.



In the US, our primary producing partner is Digital Book World and F+W Media. PLC’s Mike Shatzkin has been programming chair for the Digital Book World Conference since its inception, and Michael Cader’s Publishers Lunch is the original presenting sponsor of the event. Publishers Launch Conferences will continue to program and promote the Digital Book World Conference in years to come.  We will add focused events of our own to the growing roster at Digital Book World in January of each year, and we’ll be working with F+W to create gatherings on the digital transition for publishing at some of their other events, including the StoryWorld Conference & Expo in Hollywood in late October.

We’re also pleased to continue working with Book Expo America and the Frankfurt Book Fair to produce shows focused on international publishers at each of those events.
