The 97th annual Booksellers NZ conference is to be held at The Rydges in Auckland on 25-26 August 2018, and the theme for the conference is The Book.

We are already confirming speakers for the conference, and are excited to announce that Michael Hayward from Text Publishing will join us, in conversation with Lloyd Jones about publishing, writing and the international market. We are also overjoyed to announce that Michele A'Court will be our emcee at the Book Industry Awards, on Saturday, 25 August 2018.  

Our full programme will be released, and registrations opened in mid-May, 2018.
