The Independent Publishers Guild (IPG) and the government funded innovation project IC tomorrow present the second Meet the Innovators event. This event will feature up to ten of the hottest start-ups in the book publishing world from the IC tomorrow digital innovation programme. There will also be a £10,000 prize awarded on the day for the presentation which offers the best potential for a consumer trial in partnership with one or more IPG member companies.
The companies will present to a jury comprising IPG members, a representative of IC tomorrow and other judges.
This event is free to both IPG members and non members.
