After all the excitement of BookMachine Everywhere (6 cities, 6 speakers, 1 night) last month, we’ve decided to take it a bit easy between now and Christmas.
That doesn’t mean we aren’t going out and about with anticipation of the festive season! Here’s our list of publishing events in and around London-town.

Nothing beats the warm welcome of the publishing folks at the Galley Club. Jeremy Tankard will be speaking at their November event, with insights into his inspirations and the challenges of designing a digital typeface.
7th November: Flip

23rd November: SYP Conference (followed by BookMachine drinks)
We’re a little bit biased here, since we’re hosting the drinks, showcasing BookMachine.me and giving a talk – but really, this year’s SYP conference team (headed up by Jonathan Davis) looks like it will be the best yet. Look forward to seeing you there!
28th November: The IPG Digital Quarterly Meeting
The last IPG DQM of the year enables publishers to learn and discuss important digital issues and a chance to network with a festive tipple!
