Registration Options for Emerging Leaders in Publishing Summit

If you’re interested in attending the Emerging Leaders in Publishing Summit, but are unable to commit to a full week, we offer individual morning session registration. Each morning costs $75.00 (including taxes). These tickets can be reserved through the included Eventbright links next to each day’s descriptions.

Each morning from 9 am to 12 pm industry guests and invited speakers will take part in panels, talks, discussions and interactive sessions. Because of the cohort nature of the week’s afternoon activities, we are unable to have registration for individual afternoon sessions.
