The Publishing Show

1-2 SEPTEMBER 2021, ExCeL London

At The Publishing Show, we want to ensure the best possible experience for everyone involved. And whilst we are ready to go, and all the speakers and exhibitors confirmed to take part, we do have concerns about visitor confidence to attend in-person and join us next week.

The Publishing Show is a forum for informing, inspiring and connecting the publishing community and it’s of the utmost importance to us that none of these elements are compromised.

Therefore, with our visitors, speakers, exhibitors and partners best interests at heart, we have decided to postpone The Publishing Show (and International Confex) until the Autumn.

The new dates are:
•       Wednesday 01 September - Thursday 02 September, ExCeL London

We hope you understand and support our decision, which as you can imagine has not been taken lightly.

The Publishing Show generated great interest from the community and we know it will bounce back, bigger and better. We’ve already contacted all the speakers, exhibitors and partners and have had fantastic support for our decision and confirmation of their involvement for the Autumn.

We will be delighted if you can still join us as well.

If you registered before 14 June, then you will have been sent an email about the change.

But we’ve automatically transferred all registrations over to the new dates. So, there’s nothing for you to do at this time other than to put these in your diary.

However, if are a paying delegate and would like to discuss your options OR you would like to upgrade for the full content experience (including the Future Media Summit and OnDemand Access), then please contact Hasan at

Thank you for your support and we hope you will join us from 1-2 September 2021, ExCeL London.

Kind regards

The Publishing Show Team
