The Information on Demand conference is fast approaching. I've been doing some final planning for the conference that includes creating signage for the bookstore and book signing events. I'll share with you what the plans are and hope that you'll be able to join us at the conference and specifically for the book events.
The IOD bookstore is offering books at a 20% discount. Browse the selection of books because I think you'll be able to find several books that interest you and can perhaps help you do your job better. I'll be working at the bookstore and whenever I do, the comment I hear most often is... "I had no idea there were so many books!".
The bookstore will be open Sunday October 25 thru Thursday October 29. There will only be a limited quantity of each book... so browse & buy early to avoid disappointment.
The following authors will be at the conference and will be available to sign your books. You can buy your book at the conference or bring a copy you already own. Remember that a signed copy of a book makes an excellent gift!
