IPS UK Out In The World 🌍

At IPS UK we love that our work connects us to a global network of colleagues and the wider publishing industry. Yes, all those Teams and Zoom meetings are just fine😐, but none of them remotely (pun intended) compare to greeting clients, colleagues and peers in person. That's one reason we were so excited by some of the face-to-face events we were lucky enough to be a part of over the first quarter of 2024.

Our team was front and centre at the IPG Spring Conference. Bunmi Western, Director IPS UK, and Sarah Knapton, Manager, Business Operations, led a popular session offering key insights into what publishers should be asking of new and potential distributors if they want to get the absolute best out of the relationship, and also provided practical tips for how publishers might most efficiently switch. Their presentation sparked a series of enquiries, and its fair to say that some attendees were surprised and delighted by the straightforwardness of the advice they received.

We also enjoyed a highly successful London Book Fair 2024, one many attendees felt was more akin to the feel of book fairs before the pandemic. VP IPS UK Meredith Greenhouse, Bunmi Western, Senior Manager IPS UK Matthew Dickie, Sarah Knapton and Acquisitions Director Gonzalo Ferreyra represented our team, engaging in valuable discussions with clients and other publishing counterparts.

The Ingram stand, as always, was a veritable hub of activity throughout. Client feedback was predominantly positive, praising teams across the business, and calling out some of the advancements made by platforms like iQ and CoreSource.


We're looking forward to meeting many of you out at events like this over the rest of the year, not least at Frankfurt Book Fair - see you then!
