BookMachine Cambridge
Prepare for the future of fixed content by assessing the past

13th June 2016 | The Hidden Rooms | Free

About the event

We have been here before. The publishing industry has transformed completely in the past, and weathered the storm. So how do we prepare for what’s ahead? In this engaging talk, Astrid DeRidder will take us back to Henry VIII’s times to explore how content became what it is today and use those lessons to help us think about our future.

Our sponsors

Thanks to Redwood Publishing Recruitment and Digimarc for sponsoring BookMachine Cambridge.
