Publishing in an Unpredictable World:
transforming challenge into opportunity
Publishers Weekly, in association with Bologna Children’s Book Fair,
is delighted to announce
2017 Global Kids Connect
Publishing in an Unpredictable World: transforming challenge into opportunity
The only U.S. conference devoted exclusively to children’s publishing, Global Kids Connect delivers
breaking bookselling and retail data, the latest international marketplace intelligence and key
trends that impact how books are made, marketed and sold.
Our new format respects your demanding schedules — this year, Global Kids Connect will be a
half-day intensive program designed to provide real-world solutions for very real challenges.
Who should attend?
Publishers, marketers, editors, agents, brand managers, rights professionals
and stakeholders in children’s publishing.
We’ll be making programming announcements over the next few weeks,
but you might want to take advantage of our special early-bird pricing today.
KEY PRESENTATION ANNOUNCEMENT
Kristen McLean of The NPD Group | NPD BookScan will present a data-rich overview of the
state of children’s publishing, breakdowns on what formats, topics and categories are hot (and
not), consumer behaviors impacting retail sales, emerging trends that should be on every
publishing professional’s radar screen and key takeaways to implement now.
