When & Where
Book Industry Communication
BIC is an independent organisation set up and sponsored by the Publishers Association, Booksellers Association, the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals and the British Library to promote supply chain efficiency in all sectors of the book world through e-commerce and the application of best practice, standard processes and procedures. We have excellent relationships with all major standards bodies and we work closely with the Book Industry Study Group in the US.
BIC unites all sectors of the publishing industry, so whether you're a publisher, on-line retailer, "bricks & mortar" retailer, distributor, library (academic or public), wholesaler, digital partner, literary agent, conversion house, or any combination of these, we're here for you. We offer a "one stop shop" experience, impartial advice and support on anything & everything related to the Supply Chain (digital and/or physical) and we always love to hear from our members...and anyone who might like to become a member. Your feedback is invaluable to us.
We want to hear your ideas, what you're working on, what's challenging you right now, and what changes/developments/projects etc you think the industry might benefit from - so that we can work on your behalf to deliver solutions.
Finally, as an FYI: without neglecting the printed book world, BIC will now be focussing an increasing amount of its energy on work in the Digital Supply Chain.
