FAPA Con 2020
This year’s FAPA Annual Conference, known as FAPAcon2020, will be held on July 31-August 1, 2020, at the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace in Orlando, Florida. Whether you are a seasoned author, publisher, or just getting started in the industry, FAPAcon2020 is where you can learn from experienced publishing professionals and connect with others who are involved in the business of books and facing the same challenges.
Attendees can choose from six 75-minute workshops on Friday afternoon—some for beginners to the publishing industry and some for those who are more experienced. These workshops will deal with specific topics and are priced separately, allowing you to customize your conference experience and focus on what is most important to you.
On Friday evening, you can join your fellow conference attendees for a casual social get-together designed to give you an opportunity to mingle and network with old and new friends.
Saturday’s sessions will feature four topics: growing your book business, video marketing, understanding legal issues, and a panel exploring out-of-the-box marketing strategies. Sponsors and vendors will also be available to answer questions about their products and services.
In addition to two days of valuable information, FAPAcon2020 attendees should also plan to attend The President’s Annual Book Awards Banquet on Saturday night. It’s an exciting night of celebrating the book award finalists and honoring the people who are making a difference in our publishing community.
So … bring your questions. Bring your enthusiasm. And bring your business cards so you can make some valuable connections. Remember, there’s no need to go it alone when you’re with FAPA!
