We are very grateful to Browns Books for Students for providing us with a venue for this exciting event. Split into three sessions, delegates will hear from a VLe subscriber who will talk about their experience of using ebooks and be provided with a checklist of factors to consider when buying an ebook platform. Representatives from Bounce Marketing, Macmillan Children’s Books, Oxford Children’s Books, Raintree and Walker Books will update attendees with their plans for digital publishing and details of forthcoming titles.
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and network throughout the day.
The very full morning programme will be followed by lunch.
