The London Book Fair 2014 will take place at Earls Court from Tuesday 8 April – Thursday 10 April in 2014, it was announced today.
The London Book Fair’s annual Digital Minds Conference – which will be in its sixth year – will take place on a week day, Monday 7 April, in line with other international book fair and conference programmes.
Jacks Thomas, Director, The London Book Fair said: ‘We’ve listened to feedback from the past couple of years and it’s apparent that the majority of our attendees would prefer the entire book fair programme to take place during the normal working week. To that end, we’re pleased to respond by announcing the change of schedule for 2014.’
David Roche, Non-Executive Chair, The London Book Fair Advisory Board adds: ‘This is a positive move and recognises the significance of the Digital Minds Conference which continues to go from strength-to-strength. The LBF Advisory Board were strongly supportive of this decision.’
