The London Book Fair and the International Publishers Association (IPA) will host its first IPA Education Conference, organiser Reed Exhibitions has revealed.
The conference will look objectively at measures of achievement, the effectiveness of learning resources, learning technologies and public policies.
More than 25,000 industry professionals and 1,500 exhibitors from 60 countries are expected at the show, which will be at Earls Court on 15-17 April.
The London Book Fair is re-launching the Children’s Innovation Theatre for the event. It will showcase new media and online community projects, publishers reinventing traditional tools to engage a new generation of readers, and those finding new ways of promoting literacy.
“Children’s publishing is at the forefront of a new trend for creative partnerships with commercial businesses outside our industry,” said Reed Exhibitions sales executive Bon Sananvatananont.
“It will be great to hear from those people whose day-to-day work is driving the changes that are shaping the sector.”
Earlier this year, the Reed chairman dismissed the future of virtual trade shows.
