Content Beyond Print

Content Beyond Print

13 Mar 2019, 15:00 - 16:00

The Buzz Theatre

The Publishing industry has gone beyond the current print or digital mindset and has explored ways for one to complement the other. Both the digital and printed books are capturing the market globally. 

New technologies have entered the market with better, faster networks and new devices such as e-readers, smart phones and tablets. Modern day publishers are developing content for these devices and are exploring how to communicate with customers. The emergence of audiobooks is also an upcoming phenomenon. 

Publishers have begun to realize that ‘traditional’ digital content monetization approaches are under pressure due to various economic, social and technological factors within and outside the publishing industry. Therefore, the key to successfully monetize their content is to experiment with different models and constantly evolve.  

The session will discuss emerging trends in publishing and how such trends can create business opportunities for the stakeholders.
