Following the success of last year's conference, this popular one day event for independent book publishers will take place at 1 Wimpole Street again.
Our Conference will be bookended by two thought-provoking keynote speakers: Saatchi & Saatchi’s chairman Richard Huntington with advice on improving branding, image and communications whatever your budget; and forecasting agency The Future Laboratory with analysis of research and likely future trends in our working environments.

The Conference will gather advice from several more top names from sectors beyond publishing. We will be hearing from Facebook’s Ed Couchman about mobile marketing and the Facebook Live service, and from Kickback Media’s John Lomas-Bullivant about pitching content to TV and film companies. From elsewhere in the media we have Radio 4’s Di Speirs with tips for getting books featured on the radio, and Nick Sidwell of the Guardian and Leena Normington, formerly of the Telegraph, with advice for selling through newspaper bookshops.

The Conference will have its usual range of breakouts tailored for academic, professional and educational publishers as well as those from the trade. Sessions here include a publishing case study from Edward Elgar’s Tim Williams, Wonkhe’s David Kernohan on Higher Education, Cambridge University Press’ Mandy Hill on change in academic publishing and the International School Consultancy’s Diane Glass on selling to overseas schools.

In between we have a jam-packed itinerary with something to stimulate every publisher. IPG Patron Martin Woodhead will talk about business governance, whitefox’s John Bond about freelancers, and children’s publisher Janetta Otter-Barry about diversity. We will welcome Ingram Content Group’s David Taylor to talk about about the global supply chain, while Nosy Crow’s Tom Bonnick and Bloomsbury’s Nina O’Reilly will tell members how to make the most of the IPG Skills Hub.
