PEPCON and InDesignSecretsLive 2012 Registration Now Open

This event has passed.

We have two 2012 events to share with you!

PEPCON San Francisco

If you've ever been to PEPCON: The Print + ePublishing Conference (either 2010 in Seattle, or 2011 in Washington DC) you know that this is an event you don't want to miss! If you've never been, let me give you a quick rundown of what you'll experience:

  • May 14-16, at the Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco. I stayed at this hotel during Macworld, and it's great! It's very close to the local underground train station (BART), the famous cable cars, Nordstroms, Macys, the Apple Store, the Yerba Buena Gardens, Union Square, and more. (More conference location details here.)
  • The main conference is Monday and Tuesday, with a choice of three full-day tutorials on Wednesday. We're finalizing the schedule next week, but some of the topics include: "Producing eBooks from InDesign: ePub and Kindle," "InDesign to iPad and Android Apps," "Let’s Talk Future: How to Prepare for the Next Two Years," and "Let’s Talk PDF: Best Practices for Print Workflows."
  • We have some of the best experts and presenters in the world coming, including: Rufus Deuchler, Liz Castro, Gabriel Powell, Diane Burns, Sandee Cohen, John McWade (from Before & After magazine), Keith Gilbert, Michael Murphy, Anne-Marie Concepcion, and more! See this page for the full list.)
  • We'll feed you a great breakfast and lunch each day, and enter you to win thousands of dollars worth of prizes.
  • Don't forget the internationally-acclaimed Ignite InDesign evening, where attendees can present their coolest tricks or InDesign-related topics.
  • Plus, we're going to give you over $200 worth of stuff, including a full year's subscription to InDesign Magazine (or renew your subscription), a month of videos for free, two powerful InDesign plug-ins, ebooks, and some awesome tools.

PEPCON is clearly the InDesign event of the year -- we hope to see you there!

We're trying something new this year: A two-day one-track seminar presented by five acclaimed experts in New York City: InDesignSecrets Live! This event is co-located with the OnDemand Conference and Expo, which means that our attendees will have access to the exhibit floor and even more events and great information about publishing, photo-book production, on-demand printing, and producing digital publications.

  • Sessions include: "InDesign CS6: What You Need to Know," "Twenty Essential Scripts and Resources for EPUB and Print Production," "Ten Techniques For Every InDesign User," and "From InDesign to iPad: Digital Magazines, PDF solutions, and more."
