ACCUCOMS Announces Annual Event for Publishers

ACCUCOMS, the leading provider of sales and marketing services for publishers has announced the date and location of its annual event, ACCUFEST. This event brings together the company’s current customer base as well as academic publishers interested in ACCUCOMS’ services.

The year 2014 marks the third annual ACCUFEST event to be held in Heidelberg, Germany on the 5th and 6th of October. The idea behind this two-day event is to bring together publishers to inform them of current trends in scholarly publishing, mature and emerging markets, and ACCUCOMS’ services.

Publishers will have a chance to listen to talks by keynote speakers who are experts in the field of information management and research. One-on-one discussions with regional sales representatives from ACCUCOMS will also be possible. In addition to the informative talks and market analysis and forecasts, there is an exciting evening program planned.

ACCUFEST also importantly takes place a few days before the Frankfurt Book Fair (8th – 12th October), so publishers are urged to attend both events. The company equally represents  its publishers at the book fair.

Pinar Erzin, Managing Director and Co-Founder of ACCUCOMS, had the following to say about ACCUFEST, “We created ACCUFEST out of the need to inform our publishers about the markets they sell in, depart industry trends and forecasts, but also out of the need to come together and celebrate the successes of our publishers. ”

“After two very fruitful ACCUFEST events we are excited to once again host the event in Heidelberg – this year with the added celebration of our company’s 10-year anniversary.”

Popke Huizinga, Director at IOS Press a customer of ACCUCOMS, shared his experience of last year’s ACCUFEST and of the company’s beer celebration at the Frankfurt Book Fair:

“A few years ago ACCUCOMS started the annual ACCUFEST in Heidelberg. In addition to updates and presentations from various publishers this a good event to meet other publishers face-to-face. And not to mention the yearly ACCUCOMS Beer Fest that takes place at the Frankfurt Book Fair. The area in front of the ACCUCOMS stand at the book fair is packed with tired people; and in their hands a bottle of beer. The Beer Fest is a place (an oasis of beer) to unwind and relax after a hectic day of negotiations and presentations.”

Further details about ACCUFEST are available on the company’s website at this link. ACCUCOMS has already sent out invitations to current publishers. However, prospective publishers wishing to attend ACCUFEST can contact Raluca Pop, Marketing and Contracts Manager for more information (
