Today is the last day to book on to Europe's biggest publishing conference with executives from all the major publishers rubbing shoulders with more than 40 speakers, including HarperCollins chief executive Charlie Redmayne, the journalist Brad Stone and Seni Glaister, chief executive of The Book People.
The Bookseller's digital publishing conference, FutureBook 2013 takes place in central London next Thursday (21st November) with more than 500 delegates booked on so far.
In total more than 40 speakers from across the book business will be talking on subjects ranging from Amazon, e-book sales, partnering with tech firms, the challenges of non-fiction and children's content, library futures, and the perils of self-publishing.
Speakers include Dan Kieran, chief executive of Unbound, the crowd-sourced publisher, Sara Lloyd, digital and communications director, Pan Macmillan, Jonathan Glasspool, m.d. of Bloomsbury Academic & Professional, Richard Mollet, chief executive of the Publishers Association, and Richard Nash from threatened start-up Small Demons. Companies attending include Penguin Random House, Macmillan, Hachette, Harlequin, Faber, Constable & Robinson, Waterstones, Amazon, Apple and Barnes & Noble. Journalists attending include the BBC, who are using the event as part of a 60-minute documentary on changes to the books business and writing.
Philip Jones, editor of The Bookseller, said: "The delegate's list is a who's who of digital publishing and the wider book business. If anyone wants to see how the modern book business is evolving, this is that day."
