On Tuesday, October 5, 2021, Publishers Weekly and Westchester Publishing Services co-hosted the webinar, Publishing Industry Supply Chain Challenges and Opportunities. A panel of publishing industry thought leaders had a wide-ranging discussion that was moderated by Jim Milliot, Editorial Director of Publishers Weekly, about how the challenges with the supply chains including sourcing materials, printing content, shipping challenges, delivery delays, and more are having impacts on getting the books readers want when they want them. They also outlined several of the effective strategies they have implemented within their own businesses to help mitigate some of these problems.
