New Business Models and their Impact on the Industry

Wednesday November 19th 2014, 4-6pm, Anatomy G04 Gavin de Beer LT, UCL
followed by a drinks reception, Arts Faculty Common Room, Foster Court, G24, UCL

We all know that publishing is changing. Technology and consumer demand and taste is driving change with a need for content to be packaged and delivered in many different ways to suit the preferences of the consumer – be they the leisure reader, the academic researcher or the educator. Technology is enabling this and book publishers are embracing these myriad opportunities. Within the UK publishing industry there is a wealth of content at our fingertips and publishers are constantly evolving new business models to transform and deliver this content to satisfy the consumer. Sometimes models adopted for books right across the industry are borrowed and adapted from the academic journals sector where there has been decades of experience.
Emma House, Director of Publisher Relations at The Publishers Association will chair the session, introducing speakers on what these new business models look like, the response from the consumer and the future of the content marketplace.

These friendly, informal events allow ample time for questions and discussion, followed by drinks and an opportunity for further networking and discussion. The seminar fee is £46.00 for members of the Publishers Association or EDItEUR, and £92.00 for non-members (and a special fee of £15.00 for postgraduates from other universities).
