BolognaBookPlus (BBPlus) is a brand extension of the renowned Bologna Children’s Book Fair, focusing on general trade publishing. Launched in 2021, next year will see the first physical iteration, comprising exhibitors, visitors, conferences, training, awards and seminars.
It is very straightforward to apply for a 45 minute seminar slot during the fair, 21-23 March 2022. If you are successful, you will be allocated a time slot and a theatre space free of charge. You will then curate your session, confirm your speaker(s) and together we’ll promote your seminar.
We are open to different formats for your seminar, for example: panel discussions of no more than four people; an In-conversation event with two people and a moderator; a solo speaker talk or an interview. The theme must be of interest to a general trade audience, provide a balanced consideration of the topic, and be in no way a sales pitch for a product or service. BBPlus seminars will be in English.
Tips on pitching your seminar:
Deadline for all submissions: midnight 4 January 2022. Successful applicants will be informed within two weeks.
