Events & Education

The book industry changes at an accelerated pace and keeping up can be straining—but you don’t have to go it alone. BookNet Canada develops professional development resources and opportunities so that your company is in the know and your staff has the know-how.

What we do

Tech Forum
Canada’s leading book industry conference where attendees gain new skills in workshops and gain exposure to new business models, case studies, and workflows from around the world, all while having the opportunity to network and engage in dialogue about the future of books.

If you're involved in the day-to-day production of ebooks, you won't want to miss this annual, growing conference tailored to ebook production professionals. ebookcraft started as a one-day conference in 2014 and added a workshop day to expand to a two-day event for 2015. 

A fantasy publishing game that teaches inventory and P&L management in a fiercely competitive environment using real market data.
