Training, Connecting, and Inspiring the Christian Publishing Professional

Informing-U

PUBu is a U-Build-It event. Our BrainTrust develops a variety of sessions you can choose from that will inform your role in Christian publishing.

Training-U

You'll leave PUBu with the experience and knowledge of 10 training, networking, and general sessions -- all packed in just 24 hours!

Inspiring-U

PUBu's signature value is learning from industry colleagues and leaders through panels, Q&A, sessions, and discussions about best practices, case studies, and challenges they've faced and overcome. Plan to leave PUBu with a few more friends and mentors, inspired and encouraged in your publishing role.

Connecting-U

PUBu is the place to network and meet others in the industry who do what you do—or not. In any case, the connections you make at PUBu will enlarge your vision for the mission of Christian publishing while you hone and appreciate your craft as a vital component of that mission.
