Tech Forum

Tech Forum is our annual conference on digital developments in the book publishing industry. As the largest tech-focused professional development event in the Canadian publishing industry, it provides hundreds of book industry professionals with the opportunity to learn, debate, network, and glimpse the future of our industry. In 2014, we also held the first-ever ebookcraft conference, dedicated to ebook production professionals. It was such a success that we held it again in 2015, along with a full ebook workshop day.

The 2015 events are now complete; you can check out videos and slides from the presentations below. You can also visit the ebookcraft page for more information on that event.

Save the date!

The next Tech Forum will be held in Toronto on April 1, 2016. ebookcraft will be held March 30 & 31, 2016.
