The NBDB, in partnership with the Book Development Association of the Philippines (BDAP), the University of the Philippines, and the University of the Philippines Press,
conducted a cutting-edge seminar on "Publishing in Cyberspace" recently at
the Pulungang Claro M. Recto Hall, Bulwagang Rizal of the UP College of Arts
and Letters in UP Diliman.
The event, which was attended mainly by publishers, writers, booksellers, and other book industry stakeholders, focused on what the future holds for book publishing in and how online marketing can be used to maximize sales. Speakers included Cambridge University Press's Christopher Boughton and Yehey! Philippines' Miguel Lim. The event was a good example of collaboration by academe and industry, reflecting both UP’s commitment to strengthening academic publishing in the Philippines, and the commitment of NBDB and BDAP to creating a world-class and globally competitive Philippine book publishing industry.
