Four Decades of "Tools of Change"

John Ingram, Chairman, Ingram Book Group, Lightning Source Inc. & Ingram Digital Group, Vice Chairman, Ingram Industries Inc.

Date: Wednesday, June 20
Time: 9:15am - 9:40am
Location: Regency Ballroom

Since the introduction of a weekly microfiche publication that showed every subscribing bookstore their inventory in 1972, Ingram has been applying technology and aggregation to improve the supply chain for book publishers and their B2B customers. That same formula applies today, when an all-new digital distribution infrastructure is being created. And, as Chairman John Ingram explains, no company is better positioned than Ingram to help publishers with the transition to new forms of distribution of new configurations of product, while preserving the 20th century revenue streams for as long as they will last.
