We are looking forward to hosting our annual ‘Meet the Buyers’ event at the Law Society in London on Monday 6 July 2015. This year’s event will run in a round-table format from 2pm to 5pm, and is a superb opportunity for members to present your books to buyers from the UK’s leading book retailers. Already confirmed to attend are Amazon, Waterstones, Foyles, Gardners and Entertainment Alliance.
As part of this year’s event we are delighted to offer 'Pitch Doctor' surgeries in pitching books to buyers with James Spackman, of IPG member Watkins Publishing. James will host a series of 15-minute sessions in which two members will each be invited to pitch their titles as if to a retail buyer, to be followed by constructive feedback. The workshops will be informal and friendly and are an excellent chance to polish your sales skills and pick up tips from an expert in the field.
