The Speakers

Speakers at the Digital Book World Conference & Expo are the leading influencers in digital media: CEOs and C-level executives responsible for developing their organizations’ digital strategies, innovators who are bringing new ideas and new technologies to market, path-making authors, agents, marketers, and editors. Leaders share best practices and frank insights into their personal experiences—both what has worked and what hasn’t—so that you can avoid pitfalls and make wise strategic decisions.

DBW is committed to providing the most timely and topical program as possible. Speakers are added to the conference agenda periodically, right up until the conference itself, as developments in the marketplace warrant.
