PubWest Announces 2012 Conference Theme

“Publishing’s New Model” Explores the Industry’s Best New Practices

(Portland, OR)  — PubWest has announced the theme for its 2012 Conference: “Publishing’s New Model.” The 2012 PubWest Conference will explore how publishers have adapted for success, transforming all areas of their business to excel in today’s publishing environment. From acquisitions to marketing, “Publishing’s New Model” will explore through fascinating case studies how publishers big and small are reinventing how they make and sell books.

PubWest’s 2012 Conference is scheduled for October 25-27 at the Keystone Resort and Conference Center in Keystone, Colorado. For more information, please visit the PubWest Web site: www.pubwest.org/conference.

“The 2012 conference will build on the success of 2011’s conference “Beating the Odds: Making Money Making Books,” which focused on  best practices and strategies for making money in book publishing” said PubWest president Derek Lawrence. “The last decade has seen great shifts in the ways publishers interact with consumers, authors, industry partners, and technology. New paradigms have been born which allow almost instant access to information on trends, competition, and criticism. How effectively publishers are taking advantage of, responding to, and embracing these opportunities for marketing, content acquisition, content delivery, and audience development is the focus of this year’s conference. PubWest believes firmly that the future of publishing is looking bright. Our goal this year is to see every attendee leave the conference with a list of new processes, ideas, and contacts to take home and put to work immediately in their organization.”

PubWest’s most recent conferences have featured speakers and panelists like Len Riggio, founder and chairman of Barnes & Noble, Andrew Savikas of O’Reilly Media’s Tools  of Change Conference, Dominique Raccah of Sourcebooks, Skip Prichard of Ingram Content Group, Kevin Smokler of BookTour.com, and many more of publishing’s leading voices. The PubWest Conference and its Book Industry Trade Show offer a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with the most innovative leaders in publishing, printing and binding, design, copyediting and proofing, and legal services.

PubWest 2012 will include:

  • Intensive sessions with industry-leading experts
  • Lively panel discussions that present new perspectives
  • Informative peer-to-peer seminars
  • Inspiring keynote speakers2
  • Fun and valuable social and networking opportunities

PubWest is now inviting industry professionals to present at PubWest 2012. Please contact Kent Watson at  kent@pubwest.org to learn how to submit a proposal or visit pubwest.org/conference for proposal information. The deadline for proposals is March 23, 2012.

The upcoming conference will also include the presentation of the  2012 Rittenhouse Award for outstanding contributions to book publishing in the West. This year’s recipient will be announced in early fall. The award was established in 1990 and is given in memory of Jack. D. Rittenhouse, the West’s consummate evangelist of the book.
