Supply Chain Track at Frankfurt Book Fair

EDItEUR's Supply Chain Track returned as part of Tools of Change Frankfurt, on the eve of the Frankfurt Book Fair. The programme was stronger than ever, focusing on the operational issues facing all parts of the global book and e-book supply chains, as publishers, distributors and retailers struggle with rapid business change and the challenge of connecting with the internet-enabled customer.

The Supply Chain Track was presented by EDItEUR in association with its members l'Associazione Italiana Editori (AIE), Book Industry Communication (BIC), Book Industry Study Group (BISG) and Marketing- und Verlagsservice des Buchhandels (MVB).
