Background on the Awards
Twenty years ago, job titles and job descriptions across publishers were remarkably similar. There were key skills, and mastery of these led to respect and reward. When the landscape changed, however, many of us adapted through meaningful partnerships. We investigated new business models, expanded our core competencies, and challenged our vendors to provide new services. We learned about the technologies our customers embraced. We found new customers.
The NEPCo Awards celebrates this agile and open-minded approach to unprecedented change. To educate our members who are new to the industry, and to reward those who have achieved through meaningful relationships with partners, Bookbuilders presents this timely event.
