10th Annual Publishers & Authors Conference Preview

New Ingram Spark director Paige Allen will keynote the 10th Annual Conference of the Independent Publishers of New England, Nov. 5-7.

In this pre-conference livestream and podcast (click player window below), Ms. Allen, who took over the helm at the POD company in 2020, previews her conference presentation and outlines her priorities for Ingram Spark in the years to come.

We invite you to comment and ask questions in the discussion section on this page, so Ms. Allen can respond at the conference.

Because Ingram stepped up as ​the Platinum sponsor for the IPNE 10th Annual Conference, we are able to offer conference admission for free to members who register. Non-member fee is $75, which includes a one-year membership. It’s a win-win!
