Rajan returns to IPG spring conference along with Google's Taylor

BBC media editor Amol Rajan is returning to the Independent Publishers Guild (IPG) Spring Conference in May for a second year, and will be joined by Google’s Venetia Taylor.

The Enstone, Oxfordshire, event runs from 1st to 3rd May, including around 30 different sessions ranging across the publishing world.

This year’s keynote speakers include Google head of creative strategy Taylor, while Gabe Weisert, managing editor of Zuora, will explore the subscription model’s growing popularity. Rajan, who gave a popular keynote at last year’s conference, will also return.

Alongside the speakers, figures from publishers including Nosy Crow, Pavilion Books, Zed Books, Wonderbly and Search Press will contribute practical advice and case studies from their experiences, alongside a range of booksellers and experts from beyond the industry.

IPG chief executive Bridget Shine said: “Our Spring Conference is going to be a wonderful celebration of the flourishing independent publishing sector, as well as a superb opportunity for our members to get even better at what they do. The programme has something to engage and inspire every single independent publisher, and we can’t wait to enjoy 48 hours in our members’ company in May.”
