LBF to host audiobook summit
The London Book Fair (LBF) is launching a new audiobook summit, to be held on 10 March.
Audio HQ will include sessions on the size of the UK market and international trends, the challenges of casting, the subscription economy and commissioning. Guests include representatives from Nielsen Book, Penguin Random House, Bookwire and the US Audio Publishers Association.
LBF director Jacks Thomas said: ‘Audio’s double-digit growth over the past few years is another example of where technology and the craft of storytelling have come together to great effect. Audiobooks have expanded the reach of books bringing in new book consumers and providing another format for regular literary lovers to enjoy.’
