Organised by research firm INTERQUEST, the one-day event will address key trends in book publishing, including the growing role of digital printers for short-run and on-demand printing.

The volume of printed books produced in Europe is predicted to decline by 4% in the five-year period to 2018. However, INTERQUEST expects the proportion printed digitally to rise from 5% in 2013 to as much as 18% in 2018.

Top trends highlighted by European printers surveyed by INTERQUEST include shorter run lengths (45%); volume decline (33%); growth of digital colour (30%); more frequent orders of smaller quantities(22%); and better inventory management by publishers (19%).
