How to self-publish in Italy and abroad

HALL 29
BBPlus Theatre (morning); Sala Allegretto (afternoon)

Paid Event

A half-day conference on the variety of publishing paths available to aspiring authors, led by speakers from across the globe, looking at the Italian market and beyond, with impressive experience in publishing, marketing and selling. Self-publishing is in increasingly recognised and popular route for aspiring authors to get their work published. There are many options of platforms and services available, and the successful self-published names are likely to get the attention of traditional publishers, and can result in hybrid options, creating wider audiences, recognition, and sales. Getting started is often the biggest challenge. This event will guide aspiring authors, and those in the beginning of their writing careers through the knowledge and skills that are required to navigate the self-publishing journey, and learn how to get your book into international markets.

An in-depth look at the latest trends in Kids Entertainment and Kids Licensing during a full day of meetings and talks with international sector players.

AGENDA
10 a.m. - 10.05 a.m. Welcome and Opening remarks

10.05 a.m. - 10.35 a.m. Opening Keynote Interview - From the Digital World to a Successful World Brand
How did a digital IP in no way linked to the broadcasting sector become a global licensing phenomenon, adored by children the world over? In this exclusive interview, we’ll be looking at how this extraordinary success story got off the ground, where it’s heading next, and how it has influenced, and continues to influence trends in the kids’ entertainment and licensing industry.
Interview with:
Simon Philips, Managing Director, Global Consumer Products, Moonbug Entertainment, USA
By Cristina Angelucci, Editor-in-Chief, Licensing Magazine, Italy

10.40 a.m. - 11.25 a.m. - The Digital Evolution of Licensing
Over the last few years - and especially as a result of the pandemic - brands have increasingly had to reinvent themselves, creating new opportunities in digital environments in order to target an increasingly eclectic, transmedia audience. We look at the most successful projects and their strategies with a group of expert sector professionals.
Moderator: Neal Hoskins, owner, WingedChariot, Poland
Speakers:
Joachim Knödler, Head of Licensing, Studio 100 Group, Germany
Sébastian Wehner, CEO and Founder, Wonderz, Germany
Silvia Figini, COO EMEA, India and Oceania Mr Men Worldwide, Sanrio Company Ltd., Italy

11.30 a.m. - 11.45 a.m. COFFEE BREAK

11.50 a.m. - 12.25 p.m. An Overview of European Licensing Trends
How is the licensing market evolving in the face of today’s many challenges? What are the must-follow trending topics in the eyes of sector experts? We talk to some of the most important players on the European market.
Moderator: Ben Roberts, Senior Content Strategist, License Global, UK
Speakers:
Maurizio Distefano, President and Owner, Maurizio Distefano Agency, Italy
Pau Pascual, VP Southern Europe, MENA & South Asia, WildBrain CPLG, Spain
Antonella Ceraso, International Consumer Products Director, DeAPlaneta Entertainment, Spain
12.30 p.m. – 1 p.m. The European Licensing Market in Figures

Presentation by BrandTrends
Speaker:
Ivan Colecchia, SVP Global Development, BrandTrends, Italy

1 p.m. - 2.30 p.m. LUNCH BREAK

2.30 p.m. - 3.05 p.m. Children's Brands Enacting Real Social Change
How is the licensing industry embracing the transition to a sustainable future?

The session will be hosted by Products of Change, an organisation helping the licensing sector to bring about sustainable change.
Session organized in partnership with Products of Change
Moderator: Helena Mansell-Stopher, Founder & CEO, Products of Change, UK
Speakers:
Siobhan Galvin, Commercial Director of Magazines, Egmont, UK


3.10 p.m. - 3.45 p.m. Licensing & Retail
Experiential licensing can provide retailing with new ways of capturing the attention of an increasingly digital-oriented public. Living an experience rather than simply making a purchase and creating entertainment around a property than elicits an emotional response is to create a consumer and fan of a brand, not only for what that brand evokes but also for the emotions the brand experience has aroused. In this session, we’ll be looking at aspirational projects and success stories.
Moderator: Cristina Angelucci, Editor-in-chief, Licensing Magazine, Italy
Philippe Glorieux, Head of Marketing, Communications & Family Entertainment, IMPS The Smurfs, Belgium
David Tommaso, Marketing and Sales Director, Leolandia, Italy

3.45 p.m. – 4 p.m. COFFEE BREAK

4 p.m. - 4.25 p.m. Is it time to go beyond Gender in content for children and young people?
Changing social trends have made gender an increasingly topical issue in children's – and also very young children’s – content. How important is it to identify and differentiate the concept of gender in children's properties and content? Besides entertainment, how much does this also affect licensing and consumer goods? An exclusive study by The Insights Family will help us find out more.
Session organized in collaboration with The Insights Family
Speaker:
Will Pearce, Managing Director, The Insights Family, UK

4.30 p.m. – 5 p.m. Next Children’s Content challenges. Closing Keynote Interview

Ten years of ICWA: the Italian Children’s Writers Association celebrates with similar European associations

Sala Bolero
Services Centre - Wing B

Is networking key to writers?

Making a mark in today’s children’s publishing is every writer’s dream but a solo career doesn’t sound as exciting as maybe it did in the past. Professional connections and exchanges have become more and more important to thrive in a global and complex market. That’s why ICWA was founded ten years ago: to connect people, ideas, and resources. After a decade of intense activity, ICWA celebrates this emblematic birthday by entering into conversation with older European associations. A festive debate about the role of children’s writers associations, their importance for national literatures, and how networking improves writers’ life. Last but not least, a proper birthday cake to share!

Folktales Reimagined

HALL 26
The Illustrators Survival Corner - Masterclass Area

Folktales are stories that are passed down from generation to generation. Every culture has ones of their own – fables and myths that encompass traditions, beliefs, and legends. Some answer unsolved questions, ease social anxieties, and others tell lessons that should be learned. But what if these folktales were seen through the eyes of someone different? Not just from a different culture, but from a new generation whose understanding and perspective has progressed from when these stories were originally told. Through this project, UAEBBY aims to promote a cross-cultural dialogue and the exchange of ideas, and to honour heritage.

Taking Stock: Where Does Global Publishing go from here?

HALL 29
BBPlus Theatre

Two years into a pandemic that has dramatically shaped how global publishing does business, the industry has had few opportunities to collectively reflect. The International Publishers Association’s International Sustainable Publishing and Industry Resilience (Inspire) initiative is one of the only comprehensive global efforts to reflect on the impacts of the pandemic on publishing. Drawing on a year-long research effort involving consultations with more than 100 senior publishing executives, Inspire seeks to understand the situation on the frontlines by asking difficult questions like: Have readers and reading habits fundamentally changed? How will accelerated digitization trends affect industry development? More importantly, what can the publishing industry do to endure and emerge stronger? This session will delve into Inspire’s findings  about the longer-term impacts of the pandemic surrounding publishing tech, freedom to publish, copyright, diversity and inclusion, and sustainability to reflect on where global publishing is headed from here.

HALL 30

Translating children's books into different cultures means not only processing the text into another language, but also transferring the level of illustration, which is an additional challenge. There, the different realities of children's lives play a big role: environment, skin colour, religion, etc. as well as cultural paradigms.

SIDT (which stands for “Sustaining and Innovating cultural Diversity in literary Translation” - https://sidt-books.eu/ ) set out under a grant from the Creative Europe programme to build bridges between proven innovators and practitioners. In this seminar, you will hear all about the project in a review by its organizing consortium, namely the publisher Beletrina (Slovenia), Fundación Germán Sánchez Ruipérez (Spain), the Federation of European Publishers, the Lithuanian Publishers’ Association (Vilnius), and Ruediger Wischenbart Content and Consulting (Austria). For 18 months, 4 thorough training modules have been developed, focusing on a wide array of topics relevant to innovation practices, and each was put into practice twice with groups of European and international trainees from many different countries and professional backgrounds. Topics were ranging from ‘Design Thinking’ and ‘UX Design”, to building and handling multiformat digital title catalogues of ebooks and audiobooks, understanding niche translation markets, or how to comply with accessibility standards.

Childhood on the sidelines: reading projects in vulnerable settings - International Conference

Sala Suite
Services Centre - Wing D

The meeting will look at reading promotion and reader training in vulnerable contexts. In a world of deepening social inequalities, aggravated by the worldwide pandemic, many children and young people don’t have access to books. Data on access to distance education show how many children have been penalized by poor access to electronic media, further increasing inequality around the world. Convinced that reading opens the door to personal and social development, many associations, social movements and institutions are committed to taking books to places where there are no libraries, putting in place inspirational community projects. The panel will provide a deep dive into some of these international movements, best practices and inspiring experiences.

"in Corso d'Opera" the art of making art

Sala Minuetto
Services Centre - Wing B

"In corso d'Opera" the series dedicated to the art of making art.

This series was created with the intention of spreading the artistic culture among the youngest, helping to know and preserve the artistic heritage of the Italian territory.

The books aim to tell the little ones about the art of making art by making them spectators of the creative process through illustrations and a flowing and imaginative narrative that contains the historical and artistic references necessary to remain faithful to reality.

The first issue was created in collaboration with Gypsotheca Antonio Canova of Possagno who, together with us, followed the whole project, helping us in identifying the materials necessary for its realization.

The books in the series adhere to the ArtBonus initiative, which ensures that for each copy sold a sum is donated to the reference museum to support it in the maintenance of the works.

Our mission is to support the conservation of cultural heritage by promoting history and art among the little ones by involving museums and their educational departments by providing useful books for their activities.

Palladio - the architecture (Museo Palladio Vicenza)

Giotto - the art of frescoes (Eremitani Museums and Scrovegni Chapel in Padua)

Accessible books to give everyone the opportunity to read

HALL 29
BBPlus Theatre

One of the challenges of the European Accessibility Act is to allow 80 million Europeans with disabilities to have easier access to books. The objective of our round table is to address the subject of adapted publishing accessible to disabled people. The question is to adapt the existing books in different mediums, so that it adapts to the disorder of each one. What are the reading difficulties that arise for these different audiences? What are the adapted books offered today by publishers, in digital and in print? What innovative technologies allow the industrialization of adaptation on a larger scale? To answer these questions, we suggest inviting to this round table: a specialist in Language Disorders, an Italian publisher who offers different digital versions of the same book, a French publisher whose adapted paper collections are very successful, and an expert in innovative technology at Mobidys. Beyond European Accessibility Act compliance, it is about showing that books evolve and innovate to make reading possible for everyone.

The advantages of acquisitions for building or starting a comics catalogue

Area Mall
Authors Café

The comics and graphic novel industry is growing fast worldwide. Publishers are looking to include these types of works in their catalogues, others are looking to start new comics publishing companies or imprints and there is also a desire to increase the number of these works in existing catalogues. The growth of demand is fast and producing these works takes time. Acquisitions can meet growth demands with ease. Speakers at this round table will talk of their experiences in helping publishers grow their catalogues with the foreign rights sale of their works and others will speak of how acquisitions helped them meet growth needs.

Zoliani Kata: Challenges Faced by Small Publishers in Georgia

Sala Minuetto
Services Centre - Wing C

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, state-owned publishing houses disappeared, and private publishing houses replaced them. In the changing political and economic reality, private publishing houses have gained some new experience: Georgia joined the Berne Convention in 1995 and adopted a copyright law. Translations of modern Western literature gradually appeared on the Georgian book market, and the struggle for a license sparked competition among publishers. At the same time, new Georgian authors appeared. As a result, the ties to the Soviet publishing traditions were cut as independent publishers faced utterly different challenges - the small market and the high price of books limited them with a choice to publish only those books that were less risky.

Translated fiction took over the market as it was cheaper for local publishers to license internationally published texts and illustrations. Meanwhile, local children's books favored a safer approach by producing works adapted from myths and fables.

The need to establish Zoliani Kata became even more apparent when we discovered a shortage of books for our young children. It was a vast, untapped area open for novelties. It motivated us to plan things in the long run and not be discouraged by the obstacles.

Initially, we started to work on picture books involving local authors and illustrators. However, this format was still unfamiliar to the Georgian market and was considered risky. Then We expanded to new age categories and started publishing Young Adult novels and translated titles. 

The priorities we set from the beginning are the same today - we are interested in publishing books for children and not for their parents. We offer books that teach them to care for nature and each other, to introduce them to the ideas of empathy, acceptance, and respect for different opinions.

We never advertised our books since they speak for themselves. However, our publications received high praise over the years. Now we believe this once hobby-like experimental endeavour can become a sustainable business.

#IstatForChildren

Sala Suite
Services Centre - Wing D

Saperne di statistica aiuta a comprendere la realtà e a decidere nell’incertezza. A volte, però, le statistiche sono difficili da leggere, soprattutto per chi non è esperto, o per i più piccoli. È in gran parte una questione di linguaggio. Un ottimo espediente per superare l'ostacolo, molte volte solo apparente, è proprio cambiare lingua e comunicare numeri e statistiche in modo che ciascuno trovi quello più adatto alle proprie corde. L’Istituto Nazionale di Statistica (Istat) è il principale produttore di statistiche ufficiali a supporto dei cittadini e dei decisori pubblici. Negli ultimi anni è sempre più attento allo sviluppo della cultura statistica tra la cittadinanza, con particolarmente riguardo alle giovani generazioni. Lo fa raccontando dati e informazioni statistiche in modo semplice garantendo un elevato livello di qualità. Gli interventi sul territorio vengono modulati in base alle competenze e ai processi cognitivi dei più giovani. In occasione del BCBF Istat propone un seminario dal titolo #IstatForChildren nel quale verranno presentate attività laboratoriali giocose e illustrata la propria produzione editoriale dedicata a bambini e ragazzi. Tutte le attività possono essere facilmente replicate o reinventate in classe o in biblioteca.
