This year we hosted BIC’s New Trends Seminar at The Stationers’ Company, the City of London’s Livery Company for the Communications and Content industries, on Monday 29th July 2013.  Dating back to the sixteenth century, history and tradition are at the heart of London’s Stationers’ Hall. The Grade I listed building is located close to St. Paul’s Cathedral and offers a seamless blend of welcoming warmth and arresting grandeur.

BIC’s New Trends Seminar provides an insight to the latest and hottest innovations and changes in the industry.
