The IPG Autumn Seminar
WE ARE NOW FULLY BOOKED FOR THIS SEMINAR
Business funding and selling into North America and Brazil and will be among the important issues tackled at the IPG’s 2012 Autumn Seminar on Thursday 29 November. The Seminar’s opening slot will focus on finding funding for your publishing company. We will present a case study of one publisher’s experience, while Peter Faber of business law firm Fox Williams will guide us through the legal issues around investment. The session is a prelude to a ‘Business Angels’ dinner to be hosted by the IPG and sponsored by Fox Williams in February 2013, bringing together publishers seeking finance and those with money to invest.
The second session will examine North America — a vital market for many IPG members. We will consider the pros and cons of tackling the market by organising distribution, selling rights or doing both. Jill Coleman of Little Tiger Press will provide a case study of her experience. Expert advice for successful international marketing in North America and other territories around the world will be given by Martin Woodhead of Woodhead Publishing, winner of The London Book Fair International Achievement Award at this year’s IPG Independent Publishing Awards. The Seminar will be wrapped up with analysis of trading in Brazil — the fifth biggest country in the world, the eighth largest book market and one of the fastest growing economies. Brazil was the subject of a session at our Autumn Seminar two years ago, and with things changing so fast and so many opportunities emerging for IPG members in all sectors, the country is well worth an update. Veruschka Selbach, previously of IPG members Earthscan and Berg, will present a short introduction to EBooks Services.
Whether you have plenty of publishing experience or are just starting out, the Autumn Seminar will provide you with stimulating content to help improve your business. With a light lunch and tea and coffee served afterwards, the event will also provide opportunities for networking with old and new contacts and friends.
Our thanks to EBooks Services, UK Trade & Investment and The London Book Fair for sponsoring the seminar.
