Last chance to book children’s conference tickets

The children’s publishing world has only 24 hours left to book tickets to this year’s Bookseller children’s conference, which is taking place next Tuesday (29th September).

The day, themed around the idea of growing the children’s market by invention and reinvention, covers four key areas: building children’s brands, the next stage of print growth, knowing and growing your IP, and from users to readers.

Highlights of the day include the launch of the YA Book Prize 2016 with this year’s winner, Louise O’Neill, and presentations from the winners of the children’s marketing competition, created for this conference for the first time.

Other highlights include a panel discussion on the importance of bricks and mortar bookshops and exclusive data about how and what children read from analyst Luke Mitchell and The Bookseller’s charts editor Kiera O'Brien.

“Above all, this year’s Children's Conference will be a celebration of one of the most exciting and forward-looking sectors of the industry,” said head of marketing Sophia Blackwell. “This is our most comprehensive programme to date, covering absolutely everything from bookshops and illustration to digital platforms and licensing. I'm sure our delegates will come away full of ideas for the future, and that's exactly what we want.”

Tickets are available now until tomorrow (25th September) from The Bookseller Children’s Conference website.
