EIBF at LBF: How has Brexit impacted the bookselling trade so far?

  • 08/06/2021

We are hosting a digital panel during Industry Insights track at this year's online London Book Fair 

 

The European and International Booksellers Federation is convening a panel to discuss how the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union has impacted the bookselling industry. While Brexit has been a topic high on the political agenda for a few years now, it’s only since 1 January 2021 that businesses importing goods to, and/or exporting goods from, the United Kingdom encountered tangible disruptions. Focusing on the book trade aspect of this wide-ranging topic, this panel will explore any impacts booksellers have been experiencing and highlight what (if anything) they are doing to mitigate them.

 

How to join?  

The panel will take place on Tuesday, 22 June, during the Industry Insights track on the London Book Fair. The panel will start at 12.15 pm BST / 1.15 pm CEST. and finish with a live Q&A session from 12.35 pm BST. 

Register your participation at this year's digital London Book Fair to join the panel.
