“Reaching Readers 2.0: Where Are We headed?” is an annual trade event organised by Publishing Ireland as part of the Dublin Book Festival, where remarkable publishing professionals discuss hot topics, share their views on the future of the industry and provide great recommendations on how to reach overstimulated and hyperconnected modern readers. This year we were there, and we are happy to share with you what we have learnt.
