BA conference returns in September

The annual Booksellers Association conference will take place on 22nd-23rd September at Warwick University. Attendance will be free for booksellers again this year.

Gardners, which is sponsoring the conference, will also run its Trade Show on 22nd September.

Alan Staton, BA's head of marketing, said: "We're delighted to be returning to Warwick and to continue to work with Gardners. With their continued sponsorship we can confirm that we will be able to make the conference free to booksellers again in 2013."

The two-day conference will commence with bookseller discussions on 22nd September. A social event that evening will be opened to all participating delegates this year, rather than confined to booksellers only as at previous conferences.
