Welcome to BolognaBookPlus – a fantastic new general publishing conference, exhibit and training programme expanding our reach and taking place alongside the acclaimed Bologna Children’s Book Fair in June 2021.
Working closely with the BCBF and BolognaFiere management team, BolognaBookPlus is led by Jacks Thomas as Guest Director, supported by a UK team.
As the past year has shown us, the publishing industry is both resilient and adaptable – we no doubt all face new and different challenges and so the future-proofing of our businesses is now more important than ever.
This conference is for professionals from all areas of the publishing industry and together we’ll be examining some of the big questions we are all facing; what new markets are emerging, how will they develop and how should we engage with them? Is the traditional publishing model still valid or are hybrid cross media models the way of the future? Is English language the dominant language or are the big investors going to be the Chinese, South East Asian or Arabic language markets? How do we ensure inclusivity of content and approach? What is the future of print and where does it fit within a sustainable industry? How does AI fit within the academic STM and educational sectors?
We’ll have an international line-up of speakers and delegates so join us on 14 June 2021, and let’s move things forward together.
