PubTech Connect

Meet The Speakers

On April 20, PW and the NYU SPS Center for Publishing will present PubTech Connect (, a new kind of tech conference where innovators from tech and media companies such as Facebook, GE, and Vox Media will share their wisdom about the changing publishing industry.

Ahead of the conference, we’ve been profiling our speakers and panelists. Get a head start on it all with these articles:
