Event Details
If you were starting a new publishing company today, what would your business model look like? How would it differ from what you are doing now . . . and why?
  • What would be your goals?
  • What would be your obstacles?
  • What would be your new opportunities?

New technology shouldn't scare you away from new opportunities. You know how to develop content and find new ways to deliver, interact with, and distribute that content. What should you do yourself? What should you hire out and how should you manage the process of change?

Come, join digital guru Brett Sandusky in a discussion about changing how we think about new technology, our products, businesses, and solutions. This event is sure to be valuable to anyone in the business of creating, making, and/or distributing content.
Brett Sandusky is founder of bdigitl Media Labs, a consultancy which provides UX, product development services, physical and digital prototypes, and strategy assistance to companies launching new ventures. He's a maker of things, both digital and physical. His background in publishing encompasses innovation, product development, user experience, data systems, and marketing. Brett has been involved in the digital transformation of the publishing industry by making products, writing, speaking, and consulting.

Parking Information
There is a small side lot next to the Open Book building (just past the building on the right as you are heading east on Washington; for those heading west, turn on 10th or 11th and go down the alley to access the lot). If the Open Book lot is full, other options are:
  • Meters along 10th and 11th take quarters; most cost $1.00/hour.
  • Guthrie ramp is a block away. Enter on 9th Avenue (between Washington and 2nd Street South).
  • Municipal parking ramp across from the Mill City Museum (this is a longer walk because it is a block farther away and the entrance is on 2nd Street South).
  • Bike racks are available near both entries to the Open Book building.

Event Day Information
Doors open at 11 am. The Freelance Fair runs until 12 pm, at which time the luncheon event begins. Fees, which include lunch, are $20 for members and $25 for nonmembers. Reservations are required. If space allows walk-ins, those without reservations will be charged $30 at the door. If you reserve a place, a lunch will be ordered for you and you'll be expected to pay for it whether or not you attend.
