The first EPUB Summit, held in Bordeaux in April 2016, was a huge success. Participants from many countries have appreciated the diversity of the event. Many discussions included the future of the ebook industry, advanced technologies in use and accessibility issues for print-disabled people. With this in mind, EDRLab is organizing the second edition of the EPUB Summit on the 9th and 10th of March 2017 in Brussels, the capital of Europe.

The main objective of this event is to “touch” what the EPUB digital publication format can bring to the professionals and to the readers of the 21st century in terms of flexibility, interoperability and accessibility.

With the EPUB Summit, EDRLab aims to strengthen a true spirit of cooperation between professionals and push to the massive adoption of the EPUB 3 format by the European publishing industry.
