Visiolink Inspirational Tour 2017 is coming to a city near you - and we're excited to reveal the first speakers and parts of the programs for the conferences in Denmark and Sweden.

Visiolink Inspirational Tour visits Denmark, Sweden and Germany from August to October 2017 with one simple purpose: To facilitate a forum for publishers to network, share knowledge and, ultimately, maximise their ePaper ROI.

Each conference features six presentations from prominent publishers, media consultants and Visiolink's own ePaper experts. The presentations either address how you attract readers, how you increase ad revenues or how you optimize your digital business on the basis of data.
