Women in Digital Publishing Panel
Wednesday, 20 June 2012 from 18:30 to 21:00 (BST)
London, United Kingdom
Hot Key Books are proud to host this Women in Digital Publishing Panel featuring four innovators in the digital space.
There will unique insights from the panellists' different areas of expertise, questions about successes, failures, trends and the future of digital in publishing, and a little bit about what it's like to be a woman in digital.
This networking event is for people in publishing with an interest in digital. It will have a slight young reader slant.
