Marketing and Publicity conference, 26 June

Coming up in June, the Bookseller marketing and publicity conference:



The Bookseller's Marketing and Publicity Conference will be returning to Milton Court, London on Tuesday 26th June 2018. While Miriam Robinson has temporarily left our shores, Sophie Rochester will be our Guest Programme Director for 2018.
This year’s theme is "grabbing attention for books” and will look at the campaigns that soared and books that roared, and how today’s marketers and publicists use every trick in the, ahem, book to maximise exposure for individual titles and authors.
We’ll be hearing about the relaunch of one of publishing’s boldest brands, the reinvention of a national newspaper, how to manage crisis during an election, how clever experiential can launch campaigns, how literary prizes continue to have an impact on sales, how smart integrated PR and marketing campaigns still successfully have impact and many, many more examples to help publishers of all sizes continue to grab attention where they can. Register by 19th April for Super Early Bird Rates!
First speakers announced: 
Mylene Sylvestre
Publishing Director at Guardian News & Media

Mylene successfully relaunched the Guardian and Observer in a tabloid format, ensuring their sustainability, and reenergising their print offering. She will be joined by Richard Furness for a session on:
