on Apr 20, 2023
Authors, publishers, and other professionals from the business had assembled at Olympia London from April 18 to 20 for three days of networking and education. Other activities included a keynote speech by Brian Murray, president and CEO of HarperCollins, and bestselling mystery author Ann Cleeves, the adult author of the day.
The event offers "pivotal insight into the book world" through face-to-face interactions, conferences, and seminar programming.
The main stage was a well-liked addition to the 2018 festival. The London Book Festival's director, Gareth Rapley, said: "I'm happy that we can bring another fascinating and wide variety of conversations to the London Book Fair 2023. This year, we have the distinction of introducing a distinguished group of business titans from the publishing world, including independent publishers, multimillion-copy writers, booksellers, and media executives.
The charity of the year for the 2023 London Book Fair has just been revealed as Street Child. As a result, the charity will receive a display space and a seminar during the April book market.
An annual trade show for book publishing is the London Book Fair. The phrase "global marketplace for rights negotiation and the sale and distribution of content across print, audio, TV, film, and digital channels" describes it.
The event brings together the book community for three days of commerce, networking, and learning, bringing together publishers, dealmakers, copyright experts, commissioners, and the world's licensors, including those active in rights negotiation.
The fair has expanded in scope and significance since it first opened in 1971. It is regarded as "a mecca for European publishers, booksellers, rights agents, and media trend-spotters" and is only second in significance to the Frankfurt Book Fair.
