Academic Book Trade Conference 2017

The Academic Book Trade Conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon on the 18th and 19th May. The Academic Book Trade Awards Ceremony and dinner will take place on the evening of the 18th May.

The 2017 Conference 'Leadership and Influence in a TEF-led world' will focus on The Teaching Excellence Framework [TEF] and student engagement.

To support the conference, we will be publishing an extensive report which will explore the TEF landscape and its likely effect on key stakeholders  - booksellers, publishers, academics, librarians, university administrators, and, of course, students. 

We have a fantastic speaker line up, with keynote speeches from Sir David Bell, KCB, VC University of Reading; Stephen Lotinga, CEO of the Publishers Association; Peter Lake, Group Business Director, John Smith's and Richard Stagg, Publishing Director of Pearson.

There will also be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and debate the issues in groups discussions. And we will be running again the popular publisher/bookseller speed-dating session on the first day.

Bertrams and Dawson Books will be sponsoring the business programme and Talis the Conference registration and refreshment breaks
