The Publishing Show


Based at ExCeL on 1-2 March 2023, this premium event will host a conference and exhibition with key thought leaders in publishing and media, uniting the very best in the business and galvanising all professionals responsible for the development of publishing businesses, portfolios or products, injecting new ideas into their business model. 

Changing consumption habits, the meteoric rise of social media, and continually evolving technology makes the publishing industry one of the toughest to stay abreast of.

Over the two days there will be opportunities to attend workshops, fireside chats and seminars with thought leaders. As well as this, there will also be plenty of opportunity to catch up with old friends as well as make new connections with peers. 

That’s why you need to be at The Publishing Show, 1-2 March 2023, ExCeL, London.
