  • You want to augment your book publicity and book marketing plans by connecting with industry movers and shakers
  • Want to combine some book promotion with a vacation in an amazing city …

It’s always interesting to learn about the background of book fairs, so here’s some history on LBF, as described on Wikipedia:

The fair grew out of a librarian's trade show called the Specialist Publishers Exhibition for Librarians (SPEX) that was started on 5 November 1971 by Clive Bingley and Lionel Leventhal "as a tabletop affair in the basement of The Berners Hotel.” Bingley wanted to give small publishers a platform to easily show their titles to librarians, and so the idea of SPEX was born. "The location was chosen for its proximity to the Library Association, and the date because it coincided with a monthly council meeting there, which would be attended by a number of out of town librarians."

The first exhibition was a success and Bingley and Leventhal decided to make the event regular. The pair delivered the second exhibition in November 1972. The Bloomsbury Centre Hotel played host to the renamed Small and Specialist Publishers Exhibition.

The scope and influence of the event grew and began to encompass bigger and more general publishers. In 1975, the initials LBF made their first appearance when the fair was renamed SPEX'75: The London Book Fair. By 1977 SPEX had been dropped and the title London Book Fair was born.

Until 2006 the London Book Fair had been held at the Olympia exhibition centre, but it moved to the ExCeL Exhibition Centre in London's Docklands that year. Due to generally unfavorable feedback from attendees over the new location, such as the inconvenience of transport links or the infrastructure of the location, as well as the intervention resulting from other exhibitions and their wandering visitors, the book fair returned to west London in 2007 and took place at Earls Court Exhibition Centre. Every year, since 2007, the London Book Fair was held at the Earls Court Exhibition Centre. However, in recent years it moved to Olympia London.

The fair itself covers a wide range of interests and markets within the publishing industry, including rights negotiation and the sales and distribution of content across print, audio, TV, film and digital channels, as well as more traditional forms of print publishing. There are many activities during the whole week of the London Book Fair, ranging from business meetings between publishing companies, introductions of titles to readers and visitors, announcement for prizes and awards, and many workshops and seminars to discuss current issues and trends in the industry.

Visit the fair website for more information, and perhaps you’ll decide it's a place and event you need to be!

  96. 當蛋白線埋入皮膚後,皮下組織會將蛋白線視為異物,啟動異物反應,因此刺激膠原蛋白生長,且可促進新陳代謝,更新老化肌膚,所以客戶在術後也會發覺膚質變得較透亮白皙。膠原蛋白提拉線像一個“磁力線”一樣,將埋入處附近的肌肉和脂肪固定在原處,不會往下墜,其後會吸引皮下組織往蛋白線集中部位移動,就會逐漸產生提拉的緊實效果。也被用於填充美容的微整形,蛋白線材就好比蓋房子的鋼骨支架,先埋入皮膚當作基底結構,然後再注入好比水泥的玻尿酸或自體脂肪,因為有吸附力不易擴散,就可穩定固定住填充物,讓立體支撐力效果更好。
