• 1-on-1 or small group meetings with a speaker – Attendees will have the opportunity to sign up for a 20-minute, 1-on-1 or small group meeting (depending on their registration type) with one or more of our selected conference speakers or special guests. These meetings are not manuscript feedback sessions, and attendees should not expect the speakers to provide anything after the meeting. However it is a rare chance to have an informal, friendly chat with someone heavily engaged in the publishing world. Many of these meetings will be offered; however they will only be available while supplies last! Sign-up for these meetings will be available online in advance of the conference.
    • VIP Registration will allow exclusive access to 1-on-1 meetings, and will also allow access to small group meetings. The number of VIP registrations is limited.
