On Tuesday 6th September 2016, BIC's New Trends in Publishing Seminar is coming to the The Stationers' Hall in London - a great space to contemplate the future of book industry and network with colleagues and other BIC members.
This is a fantastic opportunity to hear from industry experts on the opportunities and challenges facing the book industry in the months and years ahead.
The Programme for the day is now finalised. Topics coverd will include:
The Dynamic Book Supply Chain – Solutions for the 21st Century
Ruth Jones, Director Publisher Business Development, Ingram Content Group
The supply chain has altered beyond recognition in recent years: New types of retailers online and off combined with changes in customer behaviour means that no-one in the supply chain can be complacent that their role will remain unchanged. The ‘me economy’ brings new pressures and demands for product discovery and supply. How can we respond to ensure we have healthy and thriving industry, ready to respond to the increasing pace of change?
Accessible Publishing and the Marrakesh Treaty
Richard Orme, Chief Executive, DAISY Consortium
Hear from Richard why we should all be thinking about accessible books and publishing, now more than ever,
with an update on the Marrakesh Treaty and its implications, including how it is likely to impact on supply
chain, metadata, and formats.
Data Protection: Brexit and the GDPR
Natalie Smith, Associate, Harbottle & Lewis
Until the recent referendum outcome UK businesses processing personal data, including the majority of the publishing industry, were gearing up for the arrival of the new European General Data Protection Regulation in 2018. But will leaving the EU now mean the end of the GDPR for UK businesses? We will discuss this important question and how to prepare for the possible outcomes during the session.
Nielsen Book Metadata White Paper – what are the latest trends and how does this impact on the supply chain and ultimately the consumer?
Andre Breedt, Director Book Research International, Nielsen Book
Nielsen will present key findings from their hot off-the-press, refreshed White Paper.
Setting the World to Rights: Why Knowledge is Power (and Profit)
Florin Craciun, Head of Sales, Ingenta
Managing intellectual property has never been more complex. Conducting a rights portfolio audit yields critical information that legal, financial and rights teams can utilise to better understand what rights they own, are exploited or untapped, as well as what contract terms are in place. A rights audit also provides a publisher with key data to inform smarter investment decisions. In this session, Ingenta provides critical insights into this new methodology and shares thoughts on the many opportunities that smarter management of rights programmes presents for publishers.

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.
