Since 2015, Brexit has been at the forefront our minds, meetings and news broadcasts. Many questions have been repeatedly asked: how will these two years of negotiation end? In a deal or no deal? What’s best for the country? What’s best for the publishing industry? What would a no-deal Brexit look like? And will any deal enable the UK to sign global trade deals in future?

 

In our seminar, we will examine the political situation and explore how the possible scenarios will impact the publishing industry. We will also focus specifically on one of the industry’s greatest strengths, exports, and look at the impact of the proposed global free trade deals. 

 

The UK publishing industry remains an export success story and is the number one exporter of physical books in the world, making up 17% of the global marketplace. The latest industry figures indicate an increase in export revenue of 8% to £3.4bn, accounting for 60% of industry revenue.

 

Given this landmark moment, we take a look at how the industry can respond to Brexit; how any risks can be averted; and any opportunities taken. We also suggest and explain why the inclusion of a publishing IP chapter in future trade agreements would benefit the industry.

 The Publishers Association will lead a discussion on the possible impacts of Brexit on the publishing industry with contributions from Fieldfisher and a political guest. We will also focus specifically on one of the industry’s greatest strengths, exports, and look at the impact of the proposed global free trade deals.

 

This session is appropriate for all those interested in the intersection of politics, publishing and trade.

 

This seminar is sponsored by Publishers' Licensing Services - Collective licensing and rights management services for UK publishers.
