Platform Strategies is an industrywide event that gathers publishers, technologists, and leaders from scholarly publishing and beyond to discuss the tools and strategies shaping our future.

Over the last three years, the Platform Strategies virtual event series has expanded to reach hundreds of attendees each year. This year, we're excited to announce that we'll be offering the best of both worlds, with a virtual series of Strategies Spotlights along with the return of the in-person Platform Strategies event, September 27th in Washington, DC. Registration for the in-person event will open in May.

The Strategies Spotlights offer case studies from publishers and partners around key industry challenges. This virtual series will cover everything from content conversion and metadata to new content types and the needs of modern learners.

Those who have attended the events before know why it holds such renown in our industry, so in case you've not joined us before, I'll let them tell you more about it:

“Platform Strategies is THE EVENT of the year. Silverchair does a phenomenal job of uniting the scholarly publishing community to learn from a diverse group of experts on the topics and trends that mean the most to the industry today. I count on attending every year so that I can stay relevant and informed as an individual and use what I learn to ensure my organization is best-in-class in an increasingly competitive world. I have notes from presentations and conversations from years past that I still refer to consistently today. You don’t want to miss this one!” Jennifer Regala, Director of Publications/Executive Editor, American Urological Association
