Peter Meirs on e-reading

Next Wednesday, July 28, Peter Meirs, Vice President of Production Technologies for Time Inc. will lead a discussion on e-readers and distribution of content at Association Media and Publishing’s New York Educational Program. The program description:

Across the board, demand for mobile content is expanding rapidly. A market jump-started by e-readers like the Kindle now includes an array of multi-function mobile devices, such as iPhones. In addition, low-cost netbooks are becoming increasingly popular as mobile reading platforms. Meirs will discuss how associations can use mobile delivery of their content to maintain and enhance member engagement.
