Ron Bilodeau Joins All-Star Speaker Lineup at 2011 Print and ePublishing Conference

We’re pleased to announce that Ron Bilodeau — EPUB master at O’Reilly Publishing — will be joining us once again, at the 2011 Print and ePublishing Conference, May 23-25 in Washington DC. This live-only, in-person event focuses on the need for professional publishers and designers to straddle the worlds of paper and pixels, ink and electrons!

Bilodeau will be alongside an all-star international group of expert presenters, including Mordy Golding, Michael Ninness, Cari Jansen, Keith Gilbert, Gabriel Powell, Nigel French, Russell Viers, David Blatner and Anne-Marie Concepcion (hey, that’s us!), and many others.

A number of developers will also be on hand to discuss your concerns, answer questions, and get feedback, including: Adobe,, Recosoft, RovingBird, iStockPhoto, Em Software, Rorohiko, and In-Tools. This is a great opportunity to jump to the cutting edge of this rapidly changing industry.

If the words eBook, iPad, tablet, PDF, XML, SWF, or HTML have entered your mind recently, you don’t want to miss this event!

  1. ‘live-only, in-person event’ – how 90s!

    Can’t I view a Connect session on my Xoom tablet while commuting to work? :)

  2. The truth is that David and I do so much “remotely” … this blog, the podcast, the webinars, the videos … that the conference is the only chance we get to venture out of our caves to see and talk with other InDesign-using carbon-based life forms.

  3. Ann Marie,

    ?…other InDesign-using carbon based life forms? LOL :>
    So true, face to face interaction is often underrated these days with remoteness becoming the new black.

  4. That’s great. He was really helpful to me last year, and I was missing his name on the list. So I’m delighted to hear that Ron’s coming.

  5. I won’t be seeing anyone at the conference, since I’ve decided to do my sessions blindfolded as an added degree of difficulty. There may be a chainsaw involved too. You never know.

  6. Mike, If you decide to use chainsaws and you’re blindfolded, please don’t be offended if I decide not to attend your session, or least sit in the back row.

    Looking forward to a great conference!

  7. Wamser, you have the bravery to teach people color management. A little chainsaw juggling pales in comparison.

    BTW, didn’t mean to go OT. I too am psyched to hear?and see :) Ron at the show.

  8. It would be great to see this as an online event – I never seem to have the capacity to make it to the live-in-person-only-events. Maybe hopefully someday it will be made online.

    Sounds like it will be a great event and a great line-up.

  9. I wish it was available online or as a DVD as well…I would love to go, but spending $1200+ for a two day conference, especially in this economy, is not practical for me…I know I would learn a lot, so a part of me is justifying the expense, but I think it’s going to be out of reach. :-(

  10. I hate when conferences say they’re in one city, but are actually 10 miles (or more) away from it. Washington, DC? Try Alexandria, VA. A charming town, but don’t think you’ll be anywhere near the city without a 15 minute Metro (subway) ride.

  11. @Lucy: I hear you. It is definitely an investment. But we believe it’s worth it! Beyond the excellent content and ability to do in-person discussions about cutting-edge stuff, you’ll be getting over $400 in free stuff (ebooks, software, subscriptions, etc.).

    @EnergonCube: Yeah, it’s a tricky thing. We have people coming from all over the place (the Seattle event last year attracted attendees from six continents), and DC is far more understandable than Alexandria. I know it’s a different city, but when two cities are that close together, it’s kind of hard for us west-coasters to tell them apart. ;)
