As reported in OMNI on Tuesday, most of the Canadian agents attending this week’s London Book Fair were anticipating lowered attendance. However, most were going and reported full schedules.
It is hardly surprising, then, that one of the first reports coming out of the fair is a positive one. From Publisher’s Weekly:
On Wednesday, the fair’s final day, attendees were walking the show floor in the early morning, and meeting tables at most stands continued to be filled. Overall attendance may not be that great, but the quality of the attendance has been phenomenal, said Frank Daniels, chief commercial officer of Ingram Digital. People are very focused, he said, and those who did show up came to do business.
