BookTech 2002 Top Ten
BookTech 2002 is just around the corner and do you know what to expect from this year's annual conference and expo? The editors of PrintMedia and BookTech magazines developed a top ten list of some of the hottest details to come out of New York City starting February 11.
10. Money is no object when it comes to serving attendees to the maximum. Those people who visit the show floor will not only have the chance to hold one-on-ones with notable vendors, such as Book-Mart Press and Glatfelter, but will be privy to free expert training on the latest technology tools in the book publishing industry.
9. How much have you ever wanted to know about book binding but were afraid to ask? Not only will the show floor feature the hottest binding technologies to make your job more efficient and cost-effective, but Dave Dunn (also known as the Book Doctor) along with Phil Knight, director of sales for Color House Graphics, will host a seminar to make the most of your budget in the book binding and finishing markets. Your sales office will thank you for it.
8. It's not just what you see at BookTech 2002, but what you'll hear. In the growing audio book industry, voice-over technology and revenue stream opportunities are catch-alls for best practices. That's why Andrew Scott, a voice-over specialist, will be on hand to discuss good fiscal decisions when it comes to audio book production.
7. In the past, attendees have eaten-up prime pointers about how to make the most of fiscal investments in the book production industry. This year, BookTech is hosting a continental breakfast designed to nourish the final day of the conference with veteran advice dispensed alongside vitamin C. Major industry figureheads will be dining to discuss quality control, materials selection and prepress secrets.
