In the afternoons during the 2022′ Readmagine conference there took place a series of presentations of different entrepreneurial projects in the publishing industry. These sessions were called «Sandbox of innovation» and promoted the exchange of ideas among professionals after the morning sessions, more focused on strategic debates and insights about future trends.
The workshops were organised around the following projects: Unebok, Ineo/Edicom, Odilo, Immer Systems and Books On Demand.
Unebook is a online bookstore promoted by the UNE (Union of Spanish University Publishers) and managed by Prodiko (Proyectos de Difusión de Contenido, S.L.). Unebook sells print books and digital books from Spanish and Latin American university presses.
Izneo, Europe’s leading digital comic platform to discover, acquire and read the most extensive catalog in all genres of comics, bande dessinée, mangas and webtoons across all screens in five languages, which partners with other organisations in Eudicom (with the co funding of Creative Europe) in a project focused on marketing in digital communities.
Odilo is a Spanish company which provides fully customized unlimited learning ecosystems to help organizations reach their full potential and also is a ebook distribution company with platforms for the e-lending of public libraries.
