Hosted Bookseller Programme
For the last 4 years the BA and LBF have run a hosted bookseller programme which has enabled over 150 booksellers attend the Fair and stay overnight in London for free.

What the 2014 participants said:

"The hosted bookseller program was utterly fantastic. The scale of the LBF nearly left my head spinning, but the seminars and assistance offered by the BA made my every moment worthwhile, and made me feel like a VIP Bookseller in an event that is otherwise dominated by every aspect of the industry but shop-floor bookselling. I will definitely be recommending the programme to my colleagues and bookseller friends - it is definitely an opportunity with something for everyone"

"It was really helpful to get an overview of the whole industry, to see new products and meet publishers and authors. We felt really well looked after by the hosted booksellers programme. Many thanks for a well organised and enlightening experience"
