Seybold 2002 To Focus on Enterprise Publishing

Desktop gets left behind By Dave Nagel
Key3Media, organizer of the various Seybold conferences and expositions, today released information about the upcoming Seybold New York convention. Seybold conferences have traditionally focused on desktop publishing, especially page layout and graphics applications, as well as publishing hardware. But for the last few major events, the focus has shifted away from the individual desktop to back-end technologies. The New York show will follow this trend.

According to Key3Media, Seybold New York will focus on "enterprise publishing." According to the company, this means databases. Says Gene Gable, president of Seybold Seminars and Publications, "For many years the focus in our industry has been on the power of desktop technology. But now we need to look beyond the desktop and see the power that comes when databases, content repositories and other enterprise resources are combined in an effective publishing workflow. This new revolution will dramatically improve the impact of all communications."

The Seybold Enterprise Publishing Conference will be divided into eight tracks--three technology tracks and five industry tracks, each focused on different parts of the publishing process. There will also be a one-day "strategic educational program focusing on cross-media authoring tools, digital rights management systems and relevant business issues surrounding the integration of business systems and data for more effective communications."

The show will be held Feb. 19 through 22 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York. For more information, visit
