Seminar Presentation Archive



Allen Press offers a variety of educational and informational events throughout the year. Our long-standing commitment to education began with the notion that convening our clients, partners, and experts in the publishing community to share information and experiences would help everyone better understand the issues we face together and how we might better serve our respective constituents.

In this section of our website you’ll find the archives of the many presentations given at Allen Press events over the past several years. Video files tend to be very large. Some presentations have been broken up into several parts to help manage file size and download duration while maintaining sufficient quality.
