"The Future Of The Book" is the Philippines' first-ever digital publishing conference, which will be held on September 13 and 14, 2010, at the UP-Ayala Technohub. An excerpt from the announcement on the Vibal Foundation site:

The National Book Development Board (NBDB), Book Development Association of the Philippines (BDAP), Filipinas Heritage Library and Vibal Foundation, Inc. will hold the country’s first-ever digital publishing conference aptly titled, ‘The Future of the Book’, with the theme: “Book Publishing in the Global Digital Arena” on 13 and 14 of September 2010 at the UP-Ayala Technohub in Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon City.

As emerging technologies continue to change the landscape of book publishing, the conference aims to introduce the various aspects involved in digital publishing – from authoring, editing and lay-outing, to distribution and consumption. The two-day conference will feature talks by distinguished names from the international and local publishing industry, including Ms. Lynette Owen, copyright director of Pearson Education, one of the world’s leading textbook publishers.
