Do you work in the audiobook industry? Then there's no better place to be than New York City this week!
On May 28, 2014, the Audio Publishers Association (APA) will host their annual conference (APAC) where audiobook producers and narrators can mix, mingle and learn from each other to heighten the audiobook experience for both consumers and those working in the industry.
This years' APAC key-note is Alan Iny, a nationally-recognized writer and speaker. He'll bring a well-rounded perspective to the event having also narrated his own book, Thinking in New Boxes.
Alan will hold a business session to discuss current challenges and opportunities in the industry, followed by an interactive panel presentation that's designed to leave APAC attendees with new skills. This year APAC is bringing publisher and narrator tracks together in the first-ever panel Publishers and Narrators Promoting Together session, which promises to be an enlightening experience.
