London Book Fair: From enhancing eBooks to engaging readers

Impelsys‘ was at the London Book Fair early this month and the days after is always a time to recover, reflect and, this year, reminisce as the fair was held in the iconic Earls Court exhibition centre for the very last time.

Earls Court has been a familiar venue for fair goers for a generation and many of the digital companies born over the past 10 years will not have known anywhere else for this important showcase and meeting place for our industry.It also provides the perfect setting to meet and share information with other publishers of all sorts and sizes.

Impelsys‘ had all 3 days filled with meetings and demonstrations of our products and offerings to the publishing world. We came across many trade publishers, Association publishers & Institutes who were thinking about new ways to customize content for their end users digitally in ways that they cannot do with print books. We found many publishers committed to understanding their end-users through richer analytics solution for predictive analysis on content consumption, improve their systems of reader/member engagement leveraging ePub3, seamless content distribution through delivery platforms, rights & royalties management among others.

We appreciate & thank all publishers and Institutes, who participated in large number to our sponsored session on “Introduction to iPublishCentral & Case Studies of Successful eBook Strategies Leveraging iPublishCentral” at Digital Theatre, making it a success.

As we all know, Olympia will be home for upcoming LBF event. Its a promise of more space, natural light and new facilities making it an encouraging prospect to hold our heavy schedule of meetings and networking opportunities within.

We would like to extend our gratitude to all the wonderful people, we met at the London Book Fair this year, many new and familiar faces among them, and for making the last three days in this grand old building such a vibrant, positive and inspiring place to be. See you at Olympia in 2015!
