At 6 pm on Monday, 13 March Stationers’ Hall filled up with publishers from across the world who had come to London for the London Book Fair. The event was designed principally with networking in mind and to celebrate independent publishing.

Court Assistant Oliver Gadsby issued a warm Stationers' welcome while Stephen Page, Chief Executive of Faber & Faber, one of the UK’s foremost independent publishers, and Lorenzo Ribaldi, Managing Director of Rome-based La Nuova Frontiera both spoke and stressed the importance of independent publishers in these difficult times and the value to be had in the creation of this forum for them to meet together. Look out for further coverage in the summer issue of Stationers' News.
