BISG Needs You!

In advance of this year's Making Information Pay (May 6th, McGraw Hill Auditorium), BISG is sponsoring a survey on "Exploring the Digital Transformation of the Book Industry" and will use the responses during the day's conference. Here is their press release:
A new Book Industry Study Group (BISG) survey, opened today, explores the ways in which new technologies are dictating “points of no return” in how books—both digital and physical—are being acquired, produced, distributed, marketed and sold.

The survey is being conducted as part of preparations for BISG’s seventh annual Making Information Pay conference, to be held Thursday, May 6, 2010 at the McGraw-Hill Auditorium in New York City.

The survey is open to all members of the publishing community and can be found HERE. “The Making Information Pay Pre-Event Survey has become a vital learning tool for the conference over the past few years,” said Angela Bole, BISG’s Deputy Executive Director. “It’s a great way for members of the book community to become involved with the program and be sure their voice is heard.”

As new technologies revolutionize the book business, Making Information Pay 2010 will address key “points of no return” through an open exploration of how close we are to a fundamentally different publishing paradigm driven by:
  • Books without bindingsBestsellers without agents or publishers
  • Retailers without storefrontsSales efforts without sales forces
  • Distributors without warehouses
Featuring a lineup of book industry leaders sharing practical insight into how they respond daily to the waves of change affecting the book industry, Making Information Pay 2010 will explore how we can know when systemic change is actually happening. Speakers and a full agenda will be announced at a later date.
