The International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF)

You can always tell when a new industry niche comes into it's own or becomes so relevent to the mother industry for transitioning to the next level...It gets it's very own "non-profit trade and standards organization" to handle, and hopefully simplfy, all the new incoming industry business concepts, models, etc., created by it's very existence!

Digital publishing is one such new publishing niche that has exploded in acceptance and popularity to such a degree that it now requires some semblance of standardization to bring order to it's application across many formats and platforms over diverse electronic devices.

Enter The International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) !

The following Marketwire press release will give you more insight into this trade organization with a very noble and needed mission, indeed...AND an upcoming IDPF conference in New York:

The International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) announced today the program outline today for Digital Book 2011 at BEA (idpf.org/digitalbook2011). The conference, held in partnership with BookExpo America (BEA), will be held May 23-24, 2011, in New York City's Javits Center, and is expected to draw global leaders in the publishing industry, technologists, marketers, retailers, supply chain management, publishers, agents, and authors.
