The Society of Young Publishers is building an international network of like-minded young people who will meet regularly and attend conferences at top trade events to discuss hot topics faced by the industry.
Jon Slack, chair of SYP, said he had spent much of this year's Frankfurt Book Fair testing the waters for the venture and building contacts with similar societies around the world.
"The response was enthusiastic," he said. "I spoke to as many associations in as many different countries as I could. When I told people what SYP did, they were really keen to do it as well."
