This series of industry awareness seminars is designed to inform industry of the latest research findings from two years of C-2-C research by RMIT University, Common Ground Publishing and independent researchers. Simultaneously, the seminars are also intended to stimulate the formation of new knowledge networks between different players in the book production supply chain.
Education in schools, training in the workplace, sharing of family histories, creative writing endeavours, commercial information management and distribution systems are some of the many spheres currently being transformed by new publishing technologies and business models. These seminars are aimed at helping to define new pathways for individuals and organisations wanting simultaneously to maximise the benefits of traditional print and book products and their electronic renderings in all environments.
I found the seminar to be throughly fantastic and inspiring. The variety of people and discussions throughly opened my eyes to many new possibilities. I am now considering the possibility of expanding the services that I currently offer to my (publishing) clients, ie short runs etc; and the possibiliy of increasing my client base due to the ability to widen my target market/clients.
I found your seminar very stimulating - there are lots of possibilities that
come to mind.
I thought the day was very beneficial to Everone who attended. I think such days highlight the resources we have in the country and the need to pool the resources together.

One of the most important outcomes of each seminar was the strong expression of interest shown by attendees in having a local and ongoing forum involving all sectors of the publishing and printing industry. To continue exploring possibilities for new partnerships and better informed business strategies, small (email) working groups are being formed to stimulate ongoing discussions in each location.
