Rave Technologies organises 8th Annual Publishing Conference

Enlightening and Inspiring knowledge shared by some of the experienced stakeholders from the publishing industry.

Due to the unprecedented conditions this year, we hosted our 8th Annual Publishing Conference on a virtual platform on the 8th & 9th December 2020.

We were joined by more than 100 attendees from the UK, Europe and USA, along with our best speakers from the publishing industry and 85+ publishing stakeholders.

The first day started with a welcome address by Paul Broome, Group CTO of Northgate Public Services followed by a thought-provoking keynote by Dr. David Smith. On the second day, Ann Michael opened the conference with a keynote. The live Q&A and panel discussion sessions helped the attendees to interact with the speakers and gain more knowledge.

Both the days of the conference were filled with interesting and engaging presentations and it was a great learning experience for all. The virtual hangout was a great opportunity for all the attendees to network with each other towards the end of the conference.

We received appreciation from the publishing stakeholders who attended the conference.

“Thank you, everyone, it was terrific to hear from amazing speakers. I learnt a lot over the last two days. I apologize for not being able to stay back. Hope to connect with everyone in future calls and Slack. Cheers!”
