2011 Print & ePublishing Conference
Early Bird deadline: April 8
(Group discounts and Education discounts, too)
May 23 - 25, Washington, DC
If you use Adobe InDesign to create publications in digital (SWF, EPUB, tablet app) or print form, this is THE event you need to attend. I wrote about the conference that David and I are producing in the last issue of DesignGeek, so I won’t go over the same details. However you should know that since I wrote that, we’ve redesigned and updated the session schedule, and David wrote up a persuasive conference FAQ that you (and maybe your hard-to-convince boss, it says “ROI” in there) would appreciate.

2011 HOW Design Conference
Early Bird deadline: April 1
June 24 - 27, Chicago, Illinois
Though I’m no stranger to HOW magazine, I’m a first-time speaker at the HOW Conference this year, and I’m thrilled!
They’ve asked me to do a solid THREE HOURS on the best InDesign tips I know. They’re even calling the session “Hard Core User Tips: InDesign”. (Wondering if I should bring my own whip, or will they supply me one?) My session is on Friday afternoon (the first day of the conference, 6/24), and then on Saturday, I’ve volunteered to be one of the speakers you can join for lunch and pick their brains. And of course I’ll be hanging around during the rest of the show .. there are over 35 session, eight in-depth workshops, and the hallmark of the HOW Design shows, studio tours of local design firms!
Here’s the full schedule of seminars and events.
If you’re coming to my sweet home Chicago for the HOW Conference, definitely let me know! And if you haven’t registered yet, you can get an extra $100 off if you use my discount code: HAH11 when you register.
