Tweet smell of success – London Book Fair 2011
The Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies was widely represented at the 2011 London Book Fair. Our students assisted the LBF with organizing seminars during the fair itself, and we also ran three extremely well-attended seminars on a wide variety of topics chaired by academics from the Centre, including one on social media – The Tweet Smell of Success? Over 150 people were turned away from the event, unable to get in the room. The seminars are available as part of our podcast series.
We also held an extremely lively and well-attended reception at our booth on the Tuesday evening. The cake, a combination of an iPad and the book Inside Book Publishing by Giles Clark and Angus Phillips, proved a great success and photos were circulating on Twitter. There were many visitors to our stand throughout the three days, with lots of interest in our MA in Publishing, our Certificate in Journals Publishing, and our bespoke training and consultancy work.
The party was also an opportunity to launch the Brookes Publishing Alumni Group.
