PPC/BMS Annual London Book Fair Seminar 2018
Wednesday 11th April, 1-2pm
‘Doing It Live: Taking book campaigns to the next level’
The BMS & PPC will explore the ways in which publishers are using digital platforms to create and share original and engaging live content to grow audiences and add a new dimension to campaigns. From livestreaming launches, stunts and performances to candid author interviews and readings, collaborating with media partners to increase outreach, live podcast recordings and using platforms such YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, live content is a new and powerful way to connect with audiences. Experts and ambassadors from leading digital brands and event programmes will give insight, showcase their work and share how ‘live’ can be used effectively on campaigns of any size and budget.
Speakers: Steven Cooper (Events Co-ordinator at Waterstones); Ted Hodgkinson (Senior Programmer, Literature and Spoken Word, Southbank Centre); Chloe Johnson-Hill (Director, Penguin Live) and Rosamund Hutchinson (Puffin Virtually Live).
Chair: Sophie Rochester (CEO/Founder Yodomo)
