BoSacks isn't cheap but he can be had for free
Hear/See Bosacks Live for Free in NYC
Friends, I have cajoled the powers that be at the Publishing Business Conference & Expo on March 10th through 12th in the New York Marriott Marquis Times Square to offer my readers free admission to see one of my lectures and hang out with fellow publishing executives. The free pass also includes entrance to the mighty exhibit hall.
In my opinion the exhibit hall alone is worth the price of admission. Since I started my career I have absorbed an enormous amount of information at various publishing exhibit halls by talking to the vendors and seeing the latest and greatest "things" available. You have heard me say before that the future is here now, but it is not widely distributed. Well, the future is usually at the exhibit hall first.
So, you get all that and it's free, and you get to see me, too. I am giving three lectures in two days. Come and see Bo live and in person.
The sessions I am giving are listed in the brochure as:
