BIC Brunch, September 2021

Event kindly sponsored by FADEL

Introduction

Over the past decade, we’ve seen a tremendous digitization of content as consumers want content at their fingertips - through e-books, audiobooks, or online platforms. To manage the increasing demand for immediate digital content, publishers increasingly have to embrace new operating models. Perhaps the most popular currently is the subscription model, where subscribers pay a recurring fee to access content. To attract and retain a strong subscription rate, publishers are continually having to tailor their content to cater for the tastes and interests of readers, which can become a complicated operation, not least with regards to rights, product management, and royalty management.

In this BIC Brunch, we will discuss and offer insights into :

 

  • Rights management for offering content as a subscription
  • Defining compensation models
  • Determining how to manage subscription products
  • Managing royalty accounting, including producing royalty statements that factor in usage

 

Who should attend? 

This BIC Brunch session will be of interest to anyone involved in the digital content space particularly subscription model operating models, including content creators and providers, systems vendors, sales teams, operational teams, those responsible for the management of royalties and metadata.

The Host 

Karina Urquhart, Executive Director, BIC

  • Vahe Hovhannisyan, Principal Managing Consultant, FADEL

BIC Brunch, October 2021

Smarter Ordering in the Book Supply Chain

Thursday 28 October 2021 12:00 -13.00 (BST)

Register here

 

Introduction

2021 saw BIC launch a project to agree, document and promote ordering best practice in the b2b physical supply chain. A wide variety of issues were identified as impacting efficiency and responsiveness.

Ordering is part of a dynamic ecosystem: metadata quality, buying practices, timely availability information, technology and standards all have a role to play in ensuring the right book is in the right place at the right time.

The outcomes of the Ordering Best Practice Project will shape a more informed way of working. They establish basic principles for effective book ordering, tracking and receipting.

With business preparedness, resilience and sustainability more important than ever, improve your understanding of what smarter ordering is by registering for October's BIC Brunch.

Who should attend?  

This BIC Brunch session will be of interest to anyone involved in the ordering of books, and the fulfilment of book ordering in the b2b physical supply chain: booksellers, distributors, publishers, metadata creators and so on.

The Host 

Karina Urquhart, Executive Director, BIC

The Speakers

  • Stephen Long, Independent Supply Chain Consultant in the Book Industry, and project lead for BIC's Ordering Best Practice project.
  • Additional speakers TBC
