BA Conference & Gardners Tradeshow

The BA Conference and Gardners Trade Show will be heading to Birmingham this year on the 10th and 11th September. Events will take place in Central Birmingham, at Conference Aston

The annual Book Trade gathering will start with the Gardners Books Tradeshow on Sunday.

On Sunday evening, booksellers will gather for the opening of the Conference, with a session lead by author Kit de Waal.

A dinner for ALL conference delegates will take place on Sunday evening and we're very grateful to the Independent Alliance and authors for hosting this special occasion.

HarperCollins will ease us into Monday with an author breakfast before the Conference gets underway.

The main Conference will be chaired again by the wonderful Cathy Rentzenbrink.

We'll open Monday with a  keynote from author, actor and all-round National Treasure, Brian Blessed.

Delegates will then have the opportunity to attend a number of 'Skills Labs' on various topics run by both trade and non trade experts.

After a successful trial last year, we'll be laying on an optional extra evening for booksellers wanting to stay on another night. We're delighted that Cornerstone are sponsoring the dinner on Monday evening.

Further details, including the programme and booking form, will be available at the end of June
