A Virtual Connection for the PubFactory Community
This year’s PubFactory user group meeting will take place from 9am to noon EDT, October 13-15 as a virtual series. We were so successful in 2020 hosting a virtual forum for customers and friends on both sides of the Atlantic that we’re once again lining up a variety of information-packed and interactive remote sessions for the highest possible inclusion and engagement.
We will be joined by our KGL colleagues to present intelligence on content accessibility, eLearning, video publishing, web authoring, platform integrations, business analytics, new partnerships, one-stop publishing solutions, and exciting developments in the PubFactory roadmap.
