Pragati Maidan, New Delhi
The publishing industry has been witnessing a paradigm shift from print to digital publishing. With increasing costs of production and print, the industry is making a strenuous effort to deal with the demand for digital content as opposed to print.
How will India become an e-Publishing base in the near future? To answer this question, we need to know what we have to offer from India and how the capacity of the publishers can be enhanced to meet the challenges of the future.
This requires a capacity building initiative in e-Publishing for the entire publishing eco system including publishers, printers, authors, distributors, mobile devices and ebook reader manufacturers, etc.; through this event we are trying to address this issue.
