Meet and Mingle Online: BookMachine & Publishers Without Borders
29 September @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm BST
Calling all BookMachine and Publishers Without Borders members!
Join us to chat, meet and mingle and chat at an online mixer event on Thursday 29th September, from 6-7pm BST / 5-6pm GMT / 1-2pm EST!
Gather on virtual networking platform, Wonder, for a fun, informal and sociable cameras-on mixer event. We will provide plenty of conversation starters to help you to get to know even more professionals across the publishing and creative industries, swap tips and share ideas.
Ahead of Frankfurt Book Fair in October, this is an ideal opportunity to meet publishing professionals from around the globe before we get together in-person at the Fair.
This is a free event for members of the Publishers Without Borders and BookMachine only.

Publishers Without Borders is a Facebook Group where publishing professionals can share ideas, problems and issues that concern our industry. As publishers, we can support each other in our endeavour to make it through this crazy times we are living. This is a space to do just that.
Accessing the mixer
An RSVP is required, so please drop your name and details to us by signing up above. Please let us know if you are a member of the PWB or BookMachine. We will share the private Wonder link to join the session via email to everyone on the attendee list ahead of the event.

Wonder allows you to ‘move’ around the virtual room to meet different people and take part in lots of conversations – just as you might at an in-person event or conference. Guests move their avatars around with their mouse, joining a conversation by moving closer, and leaving it by moving away. Simple as that!
