Publishers Launch: A Global Perspective on Digital Change

In partnership with The Publishers Association, Publishers Launch Conferences will present a full-day programme of events in central London on June 21, offering a high-level examination of the publishing sector’s digital evolution.

Publishers Launch London pairs insights from Michael Cader of Publishers Lunch and Mike Shatzkin of The Idea Logical Company and The Shatzkin Files blog with thought leaders and representatives from UK publishing for a focused, practical and provocative day of learning.

This is the first major trade ebook show to offer a combined view of the digital progress and opportunities from both the fast-growing UK market and the already robust US market. This is not a speculative show about what the world might be like in a few years and it is not a celebration of "cool" projects; it is a practical show about near-term strategies for successful digital transition by publishers and agents.

Cader and Shatzkin have been responsible for many digital change event programs, including the very popular Digital Book World show in New York each January. For their first London event, they have a full programme of critical topics:

• How the UK market fits into the global ebook landscape, the terms and structure of which are being set primarily by American companies

• How publishers start adjusting their infrastructure and overheads now for a world in which ebooks comprise half of sales

• How (and whether) territorial English rights survive the digital transition

• Which new in-house skill-sets do publishers need to create, produce and market in a digital world

• How to improve data to make books stand out on virtual shelves

• What publishers can learn from experimentation within the digital marketplace

The programme, now available on the Publishers Launch website, features a robust line-up of leading publishers, agents, and industry associations, including: Bloomsbury; EDItEUR; Faber; Hachette, HarperCollins; Nielsen; Osprey; Pan Macmillan; Penguin; Perseus; Publishers Association; Publishers Licensing Society; Random House; Rogers, Coleridge and White; and more.
