Kuala Lumpur, Nov 30, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - The sixth annual Asian Publishing Convention (APC) commences today at the Crowne Plaza Mutiara, Kuala Lumpur with 152 delegates from 14 countries.
The theme is the trade of content itself beyond borders. The two-day event features 12 plenary sessions by 16 speakers from 8 countries. The industry gurus will share insights on leveraging New Media channels.
Mr. Cyril Pereira, co-chair of APC 2012 declared, "APC 2012 creates the environment for editors to showcase excellent content and publishers to explore cross-border opportunities. APC is a B2B Marketplace to monetize CONTENT and BRAND."
