Scottish Book Trade Conference 2019

The annual conference is the biggest get-together of publishers and booksellers in Scotland and a key event in our calendar.

The programme takes its focus from the challenges and opportunities facing our members as well as current trends and issues in the industry.

Due to the pandemic, the most recent joint Publishing Scotland and Booksellers Association Annual Scottish Book Trade Conference #scotbookconf took place on Tuesday 26 February 2019 at Surgeons Quarter in Edinburgh. 

The programme featured a wide range of speakers from the book trade, pitching sessions with booksellers and breakout sessions. The conference was followed by a drinks reception.

The photographs above give a glimpse of what our conferences are like. They were taken by Sandy Young of Sandy Young Photography.

As always we are very grateful to all our generous sponsors from the industry: Batch | Bertram Books | Gardners | Ingram | Nielsen | Publishers Licensing Services.
