The Book Industry Study Group announced that at next year's BookExpo America, its Making Information Pay conference will be a part of the International Digital Publishing Forum's annual Digital Book conference.

“We are delighted to partner with IDPF on Making Information Pay,” said BISG executive director Len Vlahos. “By bringing our two audiences together, we amplify each organization’s mission, enabling us to deliver more robust, high quality content.“

Previous Making Information Pay conferences have featured a keynote from Hilary Mason, chief data scientist at Bitly; Kyusik Chung, v-p of business development at Goodreads; and Mike Shatzkin, founder & CEO, The Idea Logical Company.

“Data is increasingly critical to the business and practice of publishing" said IDPF executive director Bill McCoy. “Expanding IDPF Digital Book 2014 to include Making Information Pay will make the flagship digital conference at BookExpo America even more relevant and actionable for attendees.”

Early Bird registration to IDPF Digital Book 2014 is now open.
