Publishing Next

The conference on "the future of publishing"

Established in 2011, Publishing Next is a publishing industry conference, that is mainly focused on issues of concern to the book trade. Simultaneously it also maintains a broad perspective and seeks to foresee the future of book publishing. The conference brings together, on a single platform, publishers and other publishing professionals, from publishing houses, big and small, often just one-person entities, drawn from across India, those publishing books in its various languages, besides publishers from abroad.

The first edition of the Publishing Next conference was held in September 2011. Since then, we have had eight editions of the conference. The eighth edition of the conference was held between 19-22 September 2019.
