My plans for next week

I’m going to be up in NYC next week for, well, I was going to say BEA 2011, but there are actually 7 conferences all happening next week as well as the BEA trade show. I’ll be busy enough that postings will be few and far between, but I will try to catch up over the weekend. I’m also going to make an effort to post the really juicy stuff if I can.

I missed the DIY Author’s Con on Saturday (forgot to get a room), so the first con I will attend is IBPA University, which is put on by the Independent Book Publisher’s Association. It’s a little outside my niche, but a couple of the sessions look interesting. There will also be a bunch of digital publishing people there that I know.

I’ll be at the IBPA con on Sunday, and I’ll try to catch bits of it on Monday, but unfortunately it conflicts with a recent appointment I have for Monday morning. It also conflicts with the 1 day ABA con on Monday, as well as the IDPF con.

Tuesday will start with the B&N event, and then rapidly descend into chaos. I’ll probably split the day between IDPF and the BEA show floor. I don’t know what I’m doing on Wednesday or Thursday yet and I won’t until after I do my first lap on the show floor.

My only evening events are on Monday (DBW) and Wednesday (Kobo), and I’m leaving the other nights open for private dinners (or what have you).
