London Book Fair Tweetup 2012

Is that the sound of champagne corks popping? Did someone say ‘cocktails and canapés’?

For the third year running, Publishing Talk is pleased to be hosting the official London Book Fair Tweetup! Come and mix and mingle with the publishing Twitterati. And if you can’t join us live, follow along with the Twitter hashtag #LBFtweetup.

Your fellow Twittery publishers, authors, agents and other book trade folk will be gathering on on Tuesday 17th April 2012 at:

  • 5.00pm – 6.00pm: The Children’s Innovation Bar inside the Earls Court exhibition centre
  • 6.00pm onwards: Mango Lounge, 306 Earls Court Road, London SW5 9BA (find them on Facebook)

We have the Mango Lounge exclusively until 10pm. For those coming from the Book Fair, this is our closest venue yet – just around the corner from the Earls Court exhibition centre. For those coming from elsewhere, it is also on the same road as Earls Court tube station. Get there early for champagne cocktails and food!

This is a great opportunity to meet fellow book tweeps in real life, and connect with like-minded folk over cocktails. The perfect way to unwind after a hard day’s Book Fairing.

Don’t worry if you’ve never been to a tweetup before – it’s a very friendly crowd: just pitch up and say ‘hello’. We’ll have name badges to help you identify people by their Twitter usernames; and if you’re new to Twitter and trying to work out your hashtags, @mentions and DMs, I will once more be distributing copies of our Twitter Cheat Sheet.

Look forward to seeing you there!
