BA Conference 2021

BA Conference 2021


The 2021 Gardners Trade Show and BA Conference took place on 12/13th September 2021, at The Jurys Inn Hotel, Hinckley Island. 

The Booksellers Association and Gardners teamed up to host two days of events for booksellers. The Trade Show was hosted by Gardners, followed by the Conference hosted by The Booksellers Association.

We were delighted to gather together in person after many months of restrictions.

Events began on Sunday with the Gardners Trade Show which segued into BA Conference activity including an afternoon tea with HarperCollins, a drinks reception sponsored by BatchLine and Batch, and a dinner for all conference delegates sponsored by The Independent Alliance.

The Conference ran all day Monday and Booksellers attend for free, thanks to sponsorship from Gardners.

Throughout Monday there was a number of Skills Labs (Break-outs) - sponsored by Bookshop.Org - on a range of bookselling topics, and we had some brilliant publishers joining us to present their season highlights.

There was plenty of time for networking throughout the day - thanks to Nielsen for sponsoring the Monday refreshments! And those who stayed on for an extra evening were treated to an author dinner sponsored by Penguin Random House Children's.
