As we enter a new decade in book publishing, we can expect to see a continuation of many trends observed in recent years. Self-publishing will grow, audio will remain a top priority, and digital printing technology will accelerate publishers’ shift from an inventory-driven model to a more on-demand model. Meanwhile, publishers will need to contend with changing metadata standards and a move to 13-digit ISBNs in the U.S. market that may cause operational headaches. This webinar will share insight into key trends so that publishers and book manufacturers can prepare and adapt for success in the years ahead.

Industry experts will share perspectives on these topics and more

  • What proportion of adults are reading print vs. ebooks?
  • How will audiobooks and podcasts impact book sales?
  • What publishers should do now to be ready to deliver ONIX 3 before the start of the fall selling season
  • How can metadata be leveraged for better book marketing?
  • In what ways does digital printing impact book sales and profitability?
  • What implications will the rise of print on-demand have?
