Frankfurt 31.7.2013 - Markus Dohle, newly appointed CEO of Penguin Random House, will be the single guest speaker at this year's Frankfurt CEO debate. He will be interviewed by the editors of leading professional magazines of the international book trade: Livres Hebdo and The Bookseller, buchreport, PublishNews Brazil and Publishers Weekly, in the context of the Global Ranking of the Publishing Industry 2013, and in cooperation with the Frankfurt Academy. The event will be moderated by Rüdiger Wischenbart. It will take place on Wednesday, 9 October, 2013, from 2.30 to 3.30 pm at room Dimension Hall 4.2 at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
Publishing as an industry rich in tradition is currently re-inventing itself radically. As new global players redraw the map of what used to be the "book industry," and traditional publishing houses form new ventures, anticipating new mergers and a process of consolidation, new, emerging economies become attractive markets through their integration into global knowledge-driven societies.
With the merger of two of the largest trade publishing groups worldwide which became effective on July 1st, 2013, Penguin Random House will be a defining contributor to the future of the book publishing industry. Markus Dohle has helped shape this process, and now leads the new group. The formation of the largest trade publisher opens new horizons for the industry, as it will be a significant factor with digital developments, globalization, the relevance of emerging markets, and a reorganization of the entire value chain. And it will be closely observed over how publishing could do business with players such as Amazon, Apple or Google on a global scale. The CEO debate at the Frankfurt Book Fair will explore these topics with Markus Dohle.
The access to the event is free of charge, yet requires registration with the Frankfurt Book Fair at http://www.buchmesse.de/en/academy/programme/00559/index.html
