Assessing Key Issues in Book Publishing

Westminster Media Forum

Taking Place: Royal Over-Seas League, Over-Seas House, Park Place, St James's Street, London SW1A 1LR

This seminar will examine the key commercial opportunities and challenges for the UK consumer book market.

Planned sessions consider the impact of increased competition from new media - particularly mobile - on readership, distribution and pricing strategies.

Delegates - including authors, agents, publishers, retailers and aggregators - will discuss latest thinking on strategies to compete in the wider content economy, examining innovative digital services, the quality and differentiation of product, and how to secure a fair playing field for all stakeholders in the value chain.

Emma House, Director for Publisher Relations, The Publishers Association and Nicola Solomon, Chief Executive, The Society of Authors have agreed to be Guests of Honour at this seminar and deliver keynote addresses; and other speakers include Angus Phillips, Director of the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies.
