Scottish Book Trade Conference 2018

The Scottish Book Trade Conference took place in Edinburgh on the 22nd February

​Hosted by the BA and Publishing Scotland, the conference was our biggest gathering yet of publishers and booksellers with over 230 attendees.

Delegates were treated to two inspirational keynotes by witers, Sally Magnusson and Dr Richard Holloway.

Steve Bohme, Nielsen Book, presented the latest retail market trends to bring everyone up to speed.

In the afternoon there was a Trade Marketing Panel of booksellers and publishers, each offering their next 'Big Idea' for the Scottish Book Trade.

Bookseller only business sessions included a Brain's Trust - round table debates on a number of topics lead by expert booksellers; and the afternoon Fever Pitch featured twelve publishers pitching over 50 forthcoming titles to the bookseller attendees 

​The conference was followed by an author dinner sponsored by Pan Macmillan where
booksellers were joined by three fabulous authors: AJ Pearce, Graham Robb and Morag Hood, to round off a busy and inspiring day
