Industry - 4:40pm - 5:40pm

Chair: Franscois McHardy

It’s unavoidable and unpredictable. While other industries tackle the
digital dilemma head-on, the book industry remains adamant that the book, in
all its paper glory, will never die. In this session the Panelists ask the
questions on everyone’s lips. Will the book industry survive, can we preempt
the digital momentum and what lessons can we learn from other industries
already surfing the wave. Two audience members will take home their very own
Sony eReader, in preparation for the digital tsunami.
