Building on the success and legacy of The Bookseller Industry Awards (the trade “Nibbies”), 2016 marked the first step, and a step-change, in the way the book trade presents itself to itself and to the wider world. The new name places the emphasis on the book. Whether in print or e-book format our mission is to recognise the trade’s successes in getting more books in the hands of more readers.  We want to recognise the very best that has been produced by our own authors and publishers. From a new home at The Grosvenor House to a full-scale expansion of The Books of the Year, everything has been geared to championing our successful and vital creative industry. Awards night itself was a huge celebration of the best of the book trade and a pivotal date in the calendar.

The complete revamp of The Books of the Year creates high profile recognition of books that have been superbly written and brilliantly published. Winning one of the four categories – children’s, adult fiction, non-fiction and debut – or the overall Book of the Year is a huge accolade for author and publisher alike.
