The IBM Information on Demand Conference is a great place to promote books that are published through out the year. In fact, quite often publishers time the release of their books to coincide with this conference. As a result, we are typically able to set up book signings and giveaways to help promote the books.
This year is no different. We have quite a few books that have published already that we’ll promote as well as books launching just for the conference and we’ll have 4 (possibly 6) new Flashbooks that we’ll be giving away!
“Flashbooks” are small-sized books that have fewer than 150 pages, and have easy-to-read messages about products, solutions, or technology. Flashbooks are published to coincide the IBM Information on Demand Conference. The huge quantity of messages and content delivered at the conference makes it difficult for attendees to retain all the key messages. Flashbooks are designed to contain the key messages IBM experts want you to take away with you.
Here is the list of Flashbooks. More details for each will be available in my blog shortly.
