The iBooks Author Conference is coming up in October in Nashville, Tennessee, and we have TEN FREE PASSES to give away to iMore's readers!

The iBooks Author Conference is the annual gathering of the iBooks Author user community, from creatives to educators to marketers to self-published authors to corporate trainers and all other next-gen content creators. Last year, Apple was the largest attendee and several other large organizations, such as HCA and NASA, attended alongside many individuals using iBooks Author or considering using it. The Conference allows the sharing of thought leadership and best practices, as well as a rare networking opportunity across sectors.

The 2016 Conference features a powerhouse lineup including iMore's own Serenity Caldwell and separate tracks for creatives and educators alike. Don't miss it: October 6-7 at the sprawling (and famous) Opryland Hotel.

iBooks Author, after a rocky initial release back in early 2012, has emerged as an essential technology for content creators from coast to coast. The iBooks Author Conference is the place to plug in and learn not just what's happening now, but what's coming as well.

Are you interested in attending the 2016 conference? We have 10 free passes to give away to our readers! If you'd like to win one, leave a comment below. You MUST indicate in your comment that you understand that the prize is only a conference pass, and that any airfare or accommodations are the responsibility of the attendee.
