FutureBook 2012 Kicks Off in London

The third annual FutureBook conference, put on by The Bookseller and sponsored by Ingram, Kobo, Nielsen, YUDU, and Atwood Tate, starts in only a few minutes, but already some of the most well-known names in publishing innovations are on location and speaking about the future of books, both in the immediate and in the long term.

Nigel Roby, managing director and owner of The Bookseller, spoke to GoodeReader about why conferences with this type of focus are so important to the industry as a whole, but also so important to where digital publishing is taking the concept of a book.

Roby’s interview is below, and all of the panels and presentations throughout the day will be tweeted under the hashtag #fbook12 by the @Goodereader account and by other key presenters.
