From 9am on Friday 2nd December our annual conference provided three glittering streams of content about the future of books and publishing to an unprecedentedly packed room of industry professionals.
FutureBook brings together leading thinkers in publishing, retail, editorial, writing, marketing and tech, along with speakers from other industries.
Europe's largest digital publishing conference is expanding in 2016 to include dedicated strands on the growing EdTech and AudioBook markets.
The main FutureBook Conference began with four keynote speakers focusing on how publishers can define and better take advantage of current trends in digital. AudioBook Revolution kicked off with exclusive overviews of the growing audio markets in the UK, the US and Germany. The EdTech for Publishers event, run in association with EdTech Exchange, began with perspectives on the burgeoning EdTech scene from Outsell and London-based accelerator Emerge Education.
The three-in-one conference took place on 2nd December at 155 Bishopsgate, London, with the event also played host to the annual FutureBook Awards and the BookTech Showcase.
FutureBook is the must-attend event for anyone who wants to face our digital future from a position of power.
FutureBook is brought to you by The Bookseller, the book trade's leading industry magazine.
