For 10 years The Bookseller’s annual publishing conference, FutureBook Live, has tracked, interrogated, and challenged the way the international book business has embraced (and rebuffed) the digital content revolution.   In seven days it returns… and 67 Bricks are thrilled to be involved.

The 10th anniversary FutureBook Live takes place at Bishopsgate, London on Monday 25 November, and 67 Bricks co-founder Sam Herbert will take part in a discussion panel on Disruption matters: how scholarly publishers have learned to adapt alongside Hodder Education and DeGruyter.

Co-founder Sam Herbert said there was mounting pressure for publishers to adapt to remain competitive in the digital environment.

Sam said: “Non-traditional competitors and start-ups entering the market, user expectations driven by online giants like Google and Amazon, the commoditization of content – these are all areas causing huge concern for publishers right now.  Innovation for customers has to come in the form of better user experiences. Where publishers should innovate is at the intersection of business objectives, technology capabilities and user needs.”

Attendees at The Bookseller’s renowned conference will be in the right place for ideas on how to grab the momentum, Sam continued.

“FutureBook Live remains the stand-out gathering for smart thinkers, creatives and innovators across books. All the big themes dominating the book industry will be discussed, plus the chance to hear from speakers from Pearson, Hachette, Waterstones, Bonnier, Springer Nature, Faber, Booker, the BBC, Penguin Random House, Blackwell, and Lonely Planet.”
