The London Book Fair 2021 will go ahead as a digital-only event in June creating opportunities for the publishing industry to meet online following the impact of the global pandemic. The in-person format will return next year to its usual Spring dates of April 5-7, 2022. The Online Book Fair will bookend the month of June, with conferences taking place the week of the 7th, and a further series of flagship digital events running at the end of June. The focus will be to shine a spotlight on key areas of the fair, creating the opportunity for a larger global audience than ever before to come together in a flexible way to do business, network, learn, and share ideas. More information on the digital event will be released in coming weeks, including options for exhibitors and visitors, as well as details around the content programme, which will address themes relevant to publishers, booksellers, authors, the rights community and more.
The Advertising Association, together with other advertising bodies, IPA and ISBA, will hold UK advertising's annual industry summit, LEAD, on 8 February 2024 at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre in Westminster, London.
