The 7th Annual Digital Book World Conference + Expo (DBW) is the premier event for book publishers and content providers of all sizes and business models who plan to thrive through and beyond publishing’s digital transformation. DBW 2016 takes place March 7 – 9 at the New York Hilton Midtown. The conference will present a mainstage session called “Barnes & Noble: The Perspective of the New Chief Digital Officer” on March 8 in New York.
