Eighty percent Kenya's Publishing Sector is dominated by the sale of educational material to the tune of Kes 30 billion yearly. From just a handful of publishers to more than 100 in just a couple of years, the change of hands of many old-guard establishments to indegenous management as well as the digital innovations in this market like iHubs, eLimu, e-publishing businesses like Master Publishing prove that these changes rocking the publishing industry are just the begining.
East Africa's first Listed Publishing group -Longhorn will reveal why the "sudden" interest in the industry especially now in publishing local languages as well as digitising them. Moran Publishers as well as Kenya Publishers Association will engage through the challenges they have in particular the industry's slow move to adapting ICT platforms. This meetup will also explore the reading culture with initiatives like Story Moja's Hay Festival to rejuvante the love of readership in the country.
This is a DONT miss meetup not just for bibliophiles and educationalists but for creatives and techies with their finger on the pulse looking to tap into the hidden opportunities open for them in the East Africa region particularly in services related to Publishing.
