Sebastian Posth is a publisher, consultant and entrepreneur in the publishing industry since 2004. He has a strong focus on digital distribution, ebook retail marketing and data analytics. He is the founder and CEO of Germany’s first ebook distributor and conversion house, Digital Content Distribution Director at arvato media (Bertelsmann), consultant for German and European ebook publishers, intermediaries, retailers and bookstores.
To explore the role of libraries in a digital age, Publit and Axiell has invited five internationally acclaimed experts to a two hour track. The first hour will focus on libraries as a place, elaborating on digitally enhanced buildings, hacker space's and community centres online. The second hour will offer an in-depth analysis of e-lending as a customised service, as opposed to handling physical products.
