Programme 2013

TOC Bologna is so much more than a conference about technology in children’s publishing – it’s Programme 2013

The publishing industry is experiencing rapid change in almost every aspect: editorial, design, production, marketing, publicity, author relationships, contracts, IP and copyright. TOC Bologna will look into these root level changes and offer up solutions and case studies to help you take advantage of publishing’s ongoing transformation.

Programme sessions and speakers will be announced in early 2013 but here’s what you can expect at the third edition of TOC Bologna :

The global market for kid’s content.
See trends in usage and consumption behaviour affecting the publishing industry and explore what other entertainment and content industries across the globe are doing.

Licensing or owning IP.
Get input from the hottest brands looking for licensing opportunities in the global kids’ content market, and hear from owners of IPs looking to develop their properties outside the book channel.

Working with digital content.
Collaboration is possibly the most important aspect in the new digital and global publishing reality. It is key to all aspects of content development and distribution. We’ll discuss how this affects authors, developers, and illustrators.

We’ll look at the changing roles of editors, authors, illustrators, designers and developers and show you what you need to know to optimize the screen-based experience.

Learn how editors are evolving into producer-like roles, and how to manage what can be an overwhelming new set of responsibilities and skill sets.
