This new initiative is launched to run in parallel to the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, with the aim of reaching a wider professional audience across the global publishing industry.
Comprising a one-day industry conference, a rights training course, an Annual Literary Translation Forum, publisher pitches and a self-publishing conference BolognaBookPlus - organized in collaboration with the Italian Publishers Association (AIE) - BBPlus will be taking place online for 2021.
The headline event will be an international conference for professionals from all areas of the publishing industry - it will examine the overarching challenges from changing business models, technological enablement, accessibility, sustainability and inclusivity.
We’ll be welcoming an international line-up of speakers and delegates across all events and a targeted branding opportunity for companies wishing to broaden their audiences and gain higher visibility.
Join us online at BolognaBookPlus in June.
