Spanish Language Audiobook Market Social 2

-

Our Spanish Language Audiobook Market Social was popular, so we're meeting again! As this market grows we are gathering members actively recording in Spanish or interested in what’s happening with the market for a casual conversation. We'll share some facts about the market then break into small groups to connect. (If you'd like to give a 2-3 minute talk on a topic related to this market, please email Michele Cobb at mcobb@audiopub.org). Join us!

Nuestro evento social sobre el mercado de audiolibros en español tuvo muy buena respuesta, ¡así que nos volveremos a encontrar! A medida que este mercado crece, trataremos de reunir a los miembros que graban activamente en español o están interesados en lo que sucede en la industria para que tengan conversaciones informales. Nuevamente compartiremos algunos datos sobre el mercado y luego nos dividiremos en pequeños grupos para conectar. (Si deseas dar una charla de 2-3 minutos sobre un tema relacionado con este mercado, envía un correo electrónico a Michele Cobb a mcobb@audiopub.org.) ¡Acompáñanos!
