BIC: Building a Better Business Seminar at LBF 2017

16/03/2017 @ 10:00 - 12:30


Since 1999, BIC’s annual supply chain seminar at LBF has provided national and international representatives of the book industry, and members of the public, with an opportunity to meet and exchange views and information on all aspects of the supply chain.
This year’s seminar – Building a Better Business – will take place in The Dark Room, Olympia (Level 1, Grand Hall Gallery, beside the Media Centre).
Join BIC in this 2-hour session where you will hear from book industry experts on a variety of topics, all ultimately focussed on helping you build a more efficient business. You will learn how savvy publishers and retailers can radically improve their web page search ranking by using the extra mark-up vocabulary. You will hear about the International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI), and how it can be used to identify contributors and organisations, how it is assigned and how it can help publishers improve their business. You will hear an update on how things currently stand regarding accessibility within the book industry, and some concrete suggestions about where we should be heading, things we should be doing, opportunities, and upcoming milestones for all players including distributors, libraries, and retailers. You will learn, from recent 2016 studies in both the UK and the US about the importance of complete and timely metadata for discoverability and sales, what the latest trends are, the impact on the supply chain and ultimately the consumer. Additional speaker slots are to be confirmed shortly.
