    Tom Chalmers - Five Key Tips for the London Book Fair

    April will be here next week, heralding the end of March's 'Beasts from the East' and the start of the latest London Book Fair. Book fairs, and all tradeshows, have changed greatly in response to the huge digital evolution over the last decade, but the London Book Fair remains one of the most important events in the international publishing calendar.
