January 2017 BIC BREAKFAST 
The BIC Product Data Excellence Award (PDEA) Accreditation Scheme and the Importance of Metadata for Discovery and Sales in a Digital Age
Thursday 26th January 2016, 9-10:30am

Sponsored by:  Nielsen logo

In 2012, Nielsen Book’s White Paper: The Link Between Metadata & Sales demonstrated the benefits of providing complete, appropriate and timely metadata on book sales. The long-awaited revision of this notable report: The Importance of Metadata for Discoverability and Sales will be published in early 2017 and BIC is one of the key sponsors of this report. The BIC Product Data Excellence Award (PDEA) Accreditation Scheme underpins the provision and dissemination of complete, timely and appropriate metadata in the book supply chain.

This BIC Breakfast will demonstrate how discoverability and sales are both positively impacted by complete, appropriate and timely metadata, and will provide a brief introduction to BIC’s PDEA Accreditation Scheme. We will hear from Clive Herbert, Head of Publisher Services at Nielsen Book Discovery, about the key benefits of supplying metadata and its relation to the improved discoverability of your books. Karina Luke, Executive Director of BIC, will explain how the BIC PDEA Accreditation Scheme can help publishers improve their data quality for the benefit of their trade customers and consumers, and what gaining an award  on this Scheme demonstrates to your trading partners. Mark Scott, Sales Director of Jessica Kingsley Publishers (JKP), will talk about the PDEA Accreditation Scheme’s application process and what it feels like to gain an award. 

All publishers, large and small,  are encouraged to attend this event to learn more about the benefits of good, timely and comprehensive metadata and how that aids discoverability in this digital age.

Karina Luke, Executive Director, BIC

February 2017 BIC BREAKFAST 
Knowing your Rights: The Challenges of Selling Book Rights in a Changing & Increasingly Digital Landscape
Wednesday 22nd February 2017, 9-10:30am

Sponsored by:  Klopotek logo

In recent years, the selling of rights has changed dramatically. The growing number of available book formats and delivery options plus the expansion of global market opportunities have all facilitated an increase in the value of rights income. The sale of physical books and journals has shifted to the sale of content in multiple formats with a finer division of regional rights becoming the de-facto standard.

This BIC Breakfast – which will take place on Wednesday 22nd February 2017 – will provide an update on the challenges of selling rights in the book industry supply chain as it currently stands. With a stellar line-up of speakers, this event will discuss how the selling of rights has changed in recent years, which organisation types are experiencing this change (i.e. trade and/or STM), and how technology and appropriate tools can help to leverage the opportunities created by digital publishing. 

The following delegates will benefit from attending this event: Publishers, those involved in rights (including directors, Rights Managers and Rights Executive), Sales Managers, Literary Agents and Rights Agents. 

Hosted by: 
Alaina-Marie Bassett, Business Manager, BIC

Our speakers will include:
Lynette Owen, Copyright & Rights Consultant
Diane Spivey, Group Contracts Director, Hachette UK
Michael Healy, Executive Director of International Relations, Copyright Clearance Center
