Spain's first e-book fair to be held in November
An article from the Publishing Perspectives site says that Spain’s first e-book fair will be held this November in Madrid. In June, e-books were banded from the Madrid Book Fair so two companies, Bubok and e-Cultura, have joined forces to create the Digital Book Fair or Feria del Libro Digital. The fair will include workshops and exhibits to let attendees experiment with e-book technologies. The organizers of the Fair hope that it will encourage the development of sustainable business models for all players in the industry.
