2018 London Autumn Conference – Rewriting the (Rule)Book

November 10, 2018 @ 8:45 AM - 4:30 PM

£23 – £199

Join us on Saturday 10th November for the SYP’s event of the year: Rewriting the (Rule)Book: Innovation and Disruption in Publishing

Too often publishing gets a bad rap for being averse to change – the dinosaur of the creative industries. But is this really the case? Audio is booming, VR is the next big thing, and more and more companies have finally begun to walk the walk on access and inclusivity.

A period of significant change is underway. Organisations and professionals turning to the old rulebook are finding that it is no longer fit for purpose… but those daring enough have decided to write their own.

Under the streams, Write Your Own Story, Rulebreakers and By the Book, the SYP’s 2018 Autumn Conference will shine a light on the movers and shakers, big and small, that are changing the face of the industry and carving new paths for publishing success.

More information on panels and speakers can be found >> here <<

Date: Saturday 10th November 2018 | 9:30am (8:45am registration) – 4:00pm + After Party!

Sponsored Tickets

As part of our renewed focus on inclusivity within our society and within publishing, our new Inclusivity Committee will be sponsoring 5 tickets to this year’s London Conference. Innovation and disruption within the industry is only going to be possible if a wider, more diverse range of voices are able to have their say, and we want to help make that happen.

The sponsored tickets will be given to 6 applicants from marginalised backgrounds including those from BAME, LGBTQ+ and other under-represented groups within publishing, such as those with disabilities, and those on low income.

Applications for our Inclusivity Committee tickets are now closed. Thank you to everyone who applied, the team will get back to successful applicants as soon as they can.
