This year's theme is:
GLOBAL VERSUS LOCAL: KEEPING BOOKS RELEVANT TO ALL CHILDREN EVERYWHERE

 

Children’s books challenge, inspire and encourage young minds. However, in today’s globalised marketplace, how do publishers ensure distinct groups of readers are represented while continuing to operate and grow internationally? Join us at The Bookseller Children’s Conference 2018 to hear from leaders influential in this movement: from international CEOs to grass-roots school library campaigners, from multinational businesses to micro-publishers, across fiction, non-fiction, film and TV. We look forward to seeing you there! 

Why Attend?

The Bookseller Children’s Conference is an important date in the book trade calendar. Attracting leading figures from the world of children’s books: publishers, booksellers, authors, agents and librarians along with speakers from other industries, it is a forum for new ideas and innovation. Each year the very best speakers in the field, share their ideas and insight, stimulating fresh-thinking and enabling us all to step back from the day job and re-assess what we do and how we do it.
