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

Our speakers included Hon Grant Robertson, international guest Shaun Bythell, author Lloyd Jones and his publisher Michael Heyward, Joe Davis from Nanogirl Labs, and a panel including Claire Murdoch (Penguin Random House), Melanie Laville-Moore (Allen & Unwin) and Carole Beu (The Women's Bookshop), chaired by Rachel Eadie. With over 80 delegates, it was a success.
