Hosted Bookseller Programme
The BA's 2013 Hosted Bookseller Programme enabled over 50 booksellers to attend the Fair and take part in all the bookseller activities including a special party for booksellers and publishers.
What the participants said:
"The BA's support made it financially viable for 2 of us to attend the LBF - paying for a hotel in London meant that we could use the costs saved on accommodation to pay for the shop cover etc required just to leave Edinburgh for 3 days and go to London"
"Being able to use the Hosted Bookseller programme allowed me to spend two days at the London Book Fair, something that wouldn't have been possible without the support that the scheme provided. I thoroughly enjoyed the publishers presentations and seminars, and especially enjoyed the opportunity to socialise with fellow booksellers and people from the publishing industry. If I wasn't part of the Hosted Bookseller scheme next year, I would miss the drinks reception especially. Thanks for the opportunity!"
"I really appreciated the opportunity to attend the fair over two days with the hosted bookseller programme. The fair is so big that it would have been impossible to really the gain the benefit from one day alone. It was great to see so many new and upcoming titles showcased all in one place."
