2012 International Sales in the Information Age
These days,semi-stable currency conversions and markups are scrutinized by savvy consumers with smart phones. Should presses price in multiple international currencies? Shipping costs continue to increase, and overseas inventory management becomes increasingly painful. Is local POD the answer? It sometimes seems that all we hear about anymore are e-books. Are e-books the great panacea for the problems of selling internationally? What's their status/future overseas? This panel gathers for a free-wheeling discussion of these topics, and welcomes suggestions for future debate.
Chair: David Jackson, Sales and Marketing Director, Stanford University Press
