Talking Audio: Listening to your consumers

About this Event

BookMachine Unplugged: Talking Audio will offer real insights into what is working in publishing right now.

BookMachine has been organising popular publishing events since 2010. If you are an experienced publishing professional and crave an explosion of knowledge, ideas, and personal development - in a strictly social and informal setting - unplug from your desk and join us.

"Really enlightening evening in London talking audio books & their future. Lovely friendly crowd of publishing folk too" Anna Nicholas, Publisher and Author

The event details

Research shows audiobooks reach listeners/readers beyond traditional book-buyers and podcasts are seen as the gateway into audiobooks. But are audiobooks the gateway into other reading formats, such as print and e-pub?

Gathering together a forward thinking panel with a passion for audio, and following the success of our first ever audio Unplugged event last year, this event will uncover digital strategies within publishing.

The speakers will delve into consumer insights and will look at what shifts we can expect from the market in the future. Join them as they invite you to pick up your headphones and listen to your market.
