Audio Mini-Conference: Does Size Really Matter? Audio and Small Markets
The Publishing Perspectives Forum is returning to #fbm23 and is hosting the Audio Mini-Conference on Thursday afternoon. The panel discussion "Does Size Really Matter? Audio and Small Markets" in partnership with this year's Guest of Honour Slovenia will be moderated by Nathan Hull. Three leaders of major publishing houses in Portugal, Hungary and Slovenia will discuss how smaller book markets and smaller language can markets reap the same rewards as the US, UK, France and Germany. The panel explores how these Slovenian, Portuguese and Hungarian publishers are approaching, embracing and experimenting with the audiobook format.
Format types, international reach, finding new readers, AI opportunities and challenges, standard retail vs D2C and how to make this format cost-effective in the confines of modest language markets will be part of the discussion.
