From the official press release:

O’Reilly Media and the Bologna Children’s Book Fair today announce the first Tools of Change for Publishing event at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair. TOC Bologna will be a one day conference held on Sunday 27 March 2011, focusing on digital and mobile technology. This new collaboration between O’Reilly Tools of Change and the Bologna Book Fair unites two well-known and professional event organizers to produce an inspirational conference. TOC Bologna will be a landmark event for children’s publishers, agents, writers and international book people who are looking for the best speakers and insight into this new digital era.

Andrew Savikas, VP of Digital Initiatives at O’Reilly Media:

O’Reilly’s Tools of Change for Publishing events have helped define the agenda for publishers seeking to understand the impact of digital and mobile technology on reading and the business of publishing. The mobile web is driving fundamental changes in modes of reading and sharing, and few audiences will adopt those new modes more quickly than digital natives coming of age immersed in that mobile web. We’re thrilled to be working with the Bologna Children’s Book Fair to bring the TOC message to the children’s book industry.

Roberta Chinni, Project Manager for the Bologna Bookfair:

The Bologna Children’s Book Fair is the top meeting place for the children’s book industry. We are delighted to be working with O’Reilly Media on this new conference. We aim to offer a lively and profitable debate on the issues that the industry is facing. It is fantastic to start 2011 with a conference about the digital book world so that we can explore the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.
