Adapting to Change: Take your company & your role to the next level

In an ever-changing industry, getting on the right path toward the future can be difficult. We all feel the challenge of figuring out which path will most likely lead to success. Thankfully, we’re not alone! Learning how other publishers, distributors, marketers, and executives are tackling the same challenges can be empowering and enlightening.

The new Firebrand Group Industry Conference, hosted by the companies that make up the Firebrand Group ( Firebrand Technologies, NetGalley, and Supadu) will provide you and your team with the information, recommendations, tools, and resources you need to navigate the changes ahead for our industry.

FOR THE ENTIRE PUBLISHING INDUSTRY!

Discover the latest innovations and initiatives that can make an impact on your sales, rights and permissions, marketing, audiobooks, ebooks, printing, distribution, and more.
