One of the biggest opportunities available for ebook publishers today is the growing international appetite for ebook content -- in both English and in local languages. Developments in technology over the past five years have made it possible to sell titles produced in the U.S. to an overseas market. Developments in business over the past year -- the expansion of Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble and Apple e-reading devices to foreign markets -- have made it the most exciting business opportunity currently in ebooks.

Unfortunately, it's not that simple. Publishers looking to sell ebooks overseas must navigate foreign laws, cultures and mores to build a successful international ebook business.

Join Digital Book World and the Department of Commerce for a one-hour webcast where we will explore some of the biggest opportunities and most difficult challenges with expanding internationally. Attendees will leave with a solid idea of how to take their ebook publishing business international.

  • How Kobo is expanding internationally and creating opportunities for publishers
Who Should Attend
  • Digital publishers
