Just like many other sectors, the global book industry is grappling with the impact of digitalisation, which is making existing business models obsolete. So it’s crucial to analyse current trends and changes, and adapt to the new realities. One of the key challenges facing booksellers and publishers today is how to secure the best trading conditions in the increasingly global book/media market, particularly where this conflicts with the interests of monopolistic online retailers. The speakers will explain how companies can organise and collaborate at European level to ensure continued positive development of the book market in future.
