The Future of Agents: How Agencies Are Serving Clients in a Changing Industry

07/24/2020, 11:00 AM - 11:45 AM


This session explores what services agencies are offering beyond the traditional “sell print books” model that has dominated the industry for more than 100 years. Topics covered will include:
•    Marketing and Publicity strategy
•    Brand development and partnerships
•    New Media Deals – podcast adaptations, etc.
•    Film/TV adaptation
•    And, of course, selling books to a list of publishers that’s at once shrinking (with mergers) and expanding (as independent publishers come into their own).
