The program deals with the central issues facing the publishing industry in Germany and internationally, and offers orientation in the face of the current transformation of the business.

Two examples:

  • TES Global, the largest online community of educators in the world today, is also a company with a 100-year heritage of service to learning. CEO Rob Grimshaw will present examples to illustrate how the organization that emerged from the Times Educational Supplement is shaping the future of learning with content from publishers and schools.
  • What’s is the publishing industry’s attitude to diversity? How can publishers arrange their teams and organization to successfully develop versatile content for a changing society? Already widely discussed as one of the central future issues in the UK, the Publishers’ Forum has invited three guests to a fireside chat: Nermin Mollaoğlu, co-founder of the Kalem Agency in Istanbul; Jacks Thomas, Director of the London Book Fair; and the Berlin-based, Iraqi author and juror for the Deutscher Buchpreis 2016 (German Book Prize), Najem Wali.

The Publishers’ Forum stimulates with trends and innovations with strategic and practical applications.
