Inventory On-Demand: New Models and Value Creation

Kelly Gallagher (Ingram Content Group, Inc. )
Sponsored Session
Location: Chelsea/Gotham

The book industry continues to change rapidly, and changes bring success and opportunity to some, transformation and consolidation to others, and failure to those that don’t innovate and adapt to the market. Consumers are demanding to read what, how, when, and where they choose, and to thrive and succeed in publishing today, publishers must enable content for flexibility and portability. As the pressure to invest in the future of content becomes increasingly important, publishers are looking to control costs and gain efficiencies in warehousing, print, and physical and digital distribution. This session, led by Kelly Gallagher, VP, Content Acquisition Content Group, will review how a publisher can make the move from traditional inventory models to complete “on demand” inventory management models, using today’s technology.

This session is sponsored by Ingram Content Group
