Gamification of Publishing

London Book Fair seminar

 

Taking Place: Westminster Room, Earls Court, London Book Fair

There are now books of games, and games of books – what, for example, do we call an interactive children’s product, and does it matter? An expert panel from publishing and the games industry examines a range of topics including our continuing need for exciting stories on which games can be developed, and how publishers are looking to develop a digital strategy across media platforms.

There are many routes to publication available, from print to ebook, and the stigma of vanity publishing has largely disappeared. A panel of experts discusses the phenomenon of self-publishing and the potential rewards for authors.

The Cutting Edge of Digital

Venturefest 2012

Taking Place: Said Business School, Oxford

This is an exciting time for digital developments as new devices have arrived for the consumption of media. How are traditional publishers adapting to the digital possibilities, and how are new players shaping the future of creative industries such as games and publishing? Will there be convergence amongst media when, for example, books, games, and magazines can all be consumed on an iPad, or will there remain distinct categories? What are the possibilities for the export of digital products?
