THE CONVENTION FOR
WEB PUBLISHERS
Digipub World

August 29-30, 2019 | The Westin, Sector - 29, Gurugram

About

The third edition of Digipub World, India’s first event dedicated to online publishers, is back!

It will take off from the conversations that took place last year where speakers representing nearly all the major Indian web publishers took stage.

Since then, millions of Indians have come online for the first time – and they are hungry for content. This presents a great opportunity.

But the old challenges haven’t gone away and new ones are appearing.

Digipub World is the perfect place to catch up with these issues – and the people – connected to web publishing over two packed days in Gurugram, near Delhi.

And in the evening, attend the 3rd edition of Digipub Awards to celebrate the most exciting and creative online initiatives of the year.
