Twittering from Greece: Follow the Action From WoodWing's Publishing Conference via a Variety of Channels

(PresseBox) (Zaandam, The Netherlands, ) The future of the publishing world is taking center stage this week near Athens, Greece, as industry professionals gather for the 2009 WoodWing Publishing Conference. The theme of the event is "The Fast Track to Online," and the conference is highlighting a variety of topics, including:

- Helping publishers save money by optimizing their current workflow.
- Introducing new ways of working to support all of the publication channels.

"We know that people aren't just reading newspapers and magazines anymore, and they also aren't relying solely on Internet news sites, either," said WoodWing President Erik Schut. "They're getting their information from a variety of sources - Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, mobile devices, e-mail. Publishers have to be ready to deliver their content to all of these channels and more, and WoodWing makes it easy for them to do that. We also make it simple for them to stay ahead of the curve on whatever else might be coming."

To that end, WoodWing will be practicing what it preaches during the publishing conference. Throughout this week's event, WoodWing will be pushing content to a number of the major online and mobile channels, providing regular updates. "If you want to go on Twitter or YouTube right now to see what's happening at our conference in Greece, you'll be able to do it," Schut said.

Simply go to, and you'll be able to see all the channels where the information is available.

Schut said that WoodWing has been able to remain at the head of the technology curve by introducing a server-side plug-in to Enterprise 6, and by partnering with new leading technology companies, including Tripolis (e-mail distribution), Netbiscuits (mobile platform), arvato (hosting solutions), Serious Software 2d (barcodes), Drupal and eZ Systems (Web CMS).

He also noted that based on the attendance at this year's Publishing Conference, publishers are thirsting for ways to stay ahead of the competition. "There are more than 160 people at the conference, which is a tremendous turnout, especially in these tough times," Schut said. "These publishers are doing everything they can to gain an advantage, and they trust WoodWing to steer them in the right direction. It shows that there's a clear need for the solutions we have to offer."
