these wide-ranging issues:

Tuesday, November 10, 2009 - International Market Updates: Brazil and

8:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. EST   (Includes Lunch)

Stagnant domestic sales and the ongoing threat to academic library
funding in the coming year, has made it critical that scholarly
publishers explore all potential revenue streams. This two-part seminar
will discuss the potential benefits of doing business in export markets,
specifically Brazil and China.  This seminar will provide a roadmap to
new explorers of export markets as well as suggest strategies and
opportunities for publishers already doing business in export markets.

Both the morning and afternoon sessions of the seminar will include
discussions by experts in the publishing and library industries within
Brazil and China. SSP has collaborated with the World Bank in creating
this seminar in order to help publishers assess the potential for
revenue generation in these markets and also to provide guidance in the
process of strategy building for business development.
