2016 Sponsors


  • BookBub

    BookBub's free book discovery tools help millions of readers around the world find new books and authors to enjoy. With chart-topping results and a large and dedicated reader base, BookBub is the perfect partner for publishers and authors looking to boost sales and create buzz.

  • Firsty Group

    The Firsty Group was established in 2010, but our history extends back well beyond that. We began life back in 2003 as a dedicated web development agency creating websites for a broad mix of consumer facing businesses. In 2010 we chose to focus almost exclusively on delivering digital services to publishers and so Firsty was born.

    We are based in Newbury, Berkshire, but that’s not really the important bit unless like lots of our clients you like having a UK partner. We are a tight knit team of commercial, operational, web development and design professionals with decades of experience. We understand digital, but crucially we also understand publishing and we pride ourselves on giving timely, objective and informed advice to our clients.
