Seybold San Francisco Mega-Event

Seybold Seminars, Publications and Consulting Announces New Mega-Event in San Francisco

Seybold San Francisco is Reborn at Moscone West

Nine Focused Channels Cover the Breadth of Publishing Today

Los Angeles, CA, USA. March 18, 2003.

Seybold Seminars, Publications and Consulting today announced a worldwide event program including the largest Seybold Seminars Conference Program ever! The San Francisco event has been completely transformed, the dates have changed, the building has changed and the tradeshow model has been completely redesigned. For the first time, the program will include nine in-depth, hands-on focus areas, covering a wide variety of topics critical to all aspects of the publishing industry. The new Seybold San Francisco will make its debut September 8-12, 2003 at the Moscone Center West.

"At some point in every brand's life cycle there needs to be evolution, reinvention and change. Today is a new day for Seybold and change abounds," said James Smith, vice president and general manager of Seybold Seminars, Publications and Consulting. "For 32 years, the Seybold brand has represented quality, reliability and vision. As publishing technology has changed over the years, Seybold Seminars and Seybold Publications have served as 'pathfinders' which have helped many survive and prosper through some very tough times. We've spent the last 4 months reaching out to our community and understanding their strategy and challenges during these difficult times. We've aggregated this feedback, repositioned the brand and completely rebuilt the mega-event in San Francisco. The result is the most complete publishing technology information solution in the industry today."

The mission for this new event is to equip industry professionals with complete, unbiased information and face-to-face experiences that will allow them to make important business decisions with confidence. Seybold San Francisco 2003 will introduce nine new channels to provide the Seybold community with a forum to network and be inspired. Each key publishing industry segment will be developed individually for maximum impact, yet feed into the overall Seybold mission. These channels include:
