Dear PBG Steering Committee and Pub Summit Program Committee


The program for the W3C Publishing Summit has just been updated with a few
tweaks plus new speakers/sessions added from Microsoft and Atypon.


Early-bird registration ends in less than two week (Oct 6) so now would be
an excellent time for you to promote the event through mentioning it in a
blog post or whatever. A couple of you (you know who you are) have posted
really excellent pieces recently promoting aspects of the EPUB ecosystem -
that's great but now would be an excellent time to hook in such posts to the
Pub Summit with something like "and learn more about this at the upcoming
W3C Publishing Summit Nov 9-10 in SF". I have tried to make such tie-ins in
tweets but it's a lot more impactful coming directly. Or, just post directly
about the Pub Summit (in which case you could say a bit more and post a
direct link to registration page as well as event page).

 

As of today we have 84 registered, 62 of them paid. That's not terrible, but
it means we are still a long way from 200. And based on our predictive model
(aka guess) in order to get to 200 paid registrations we should have at
least 90 and ideally 110 registrations by end of early-bird period (Oct 6).
So your help would be much appreciated as a strong showing at this event
will both help build community in Publishing@W3C and support our activities.


 

Note that discount of 10% can be made available to any organization that
wants to promote the event to their members via email, and under the right
circumstances we can throw in a free pass or two. Contact me if you see
opportunity for this.

 

Thanks!

 

--Bill

 

P.S. I will be reaching out to speakers along these lines shortly - not
giving them all the details per above but with a request for help promoting.
