The Suppliers’ Fair will be open on the Friday and Saturday, on the large 1st floor, balcony area, which is between the lecture halls. Mid-morning and afternoon refreshments will be served nearby. The major suppliers of bookbinding and related crafts will attend, and there will be ample time for shopping and browsing. A list of the suppliers attending the Conference will be sent out with the joining instructions.
Entries for the SoB International Bookbinding Competition 2019 will be on display for the duration of the Conference. Further details of the competition will be published here at a later date.
There is an option for early arrivals on the Thursday Afternoon to visit the Bindery of George Bayntun in Bath or to explore the City with a guide.
Throughout the Conference there will be a ‘silent auction’ running, where bidders for small items can write their bids on a bidding form. Larger items will be sold at the Live Auction after the Conference Dinner on Saturday evening. Please bring tools, materials, books and any other items that you may wish to donate to the Society for this sale which raises money to support the Society’s educational activities.
