Don't take our word for it!

Here's what past attendees have to say about IPG Publisher Summit:  
"The IPG Publisher Summit is the most valuable event I go to. From a combination of presentations by experienced IPG and industry professionals to meeting with quality vendors that are meaningful to my business, this summit adds measurable, actionable and immediate value to my press."
- Michelle Halket, Central Avenue Publishing

"The conference was terrific and a great investment...the perfect balance/size of publishers and vendors. The sessions I attended were very informative and had a lively exchange of ideas. As an exhibitor, we certainly will get incremental business out of it and deepened our relationships with publishers & vendors."
- Publishers Weekly
  "What a resource (and privilege) to have all of these people who are part of publishing together for 2 days to talk about trends, best practices, what’s new (and old), and how we can all move forward to stay relevant and successful." - Melanie Roth, Fulcrum Publishing

“The IPG Publisher Summit was an amazing opportunity to network with other professionals in the book industry and build on those professional relationships. IPG offered up-to-date education to attendees on everything related to marketing, publicity and distribution of books. It was a fantastic event! - Maria Dismondy, Cardinal Rule Press

"I’ve been to other events where [attendees] seemed to be very intimidated by the exhibitors so they tended to stay away. This event was so much different. We had publishers come by to see us just to say hello because they didn’t think they had met us before. It was quite refreshing and there really is a camaraderie within the group of publishing clients at IPG that I just don’t see regularly in the marketplace" - Maple Press, book manufacturing
