Edelweiss has announced the launch of Edelweiss BookFest, a virtual event that’s intended to fill the gap left by in-person event cancellations.
The new online Edelweiss BookFest event will take place June 8-9, 2021. Preliminary education tracks will include: New Title Discovery, Retail Bookselling, Library Best Practices, and a special track on revenue generation in the evolving pandemic period. Edelweiss BookFest will consist of virtual booths for attendees to visit that will enable live conversations, videos, and downloadable tools for sales and marketing.
Edelweiss currently works with over 95% of the book publishing community to provide sales and marketing tools that make books easier to discover, sell, and purchase. The two-day event will be preceded by a series of individual book launches using an expanded Edelweiss platform.
