  • What previous visitors said...

    • The London book fair is the most important Fair for the book business in London and Olympia is milling with people with different book interests. It’s amazing; every floor is crammed with book enthusiasts.

      • Mary Berry
    • Events like this are incredibly important to encourage collaboration between different sectors. Games are misunderstood – people think it’s all about big companies when in fact we’ve seen entrepreneurial growth.

      • Jo Twist, UKiE
    • It’s very important for publishers to get together. You can see it all around these huge halls with lovely sunshine flooding in – people are talking to each other face-to-face and business is being done.
