The 2022 Book Direct Show was jam-packed with practical and actionable expert advice. The quality of the speakers was exceptional. I took something away from every presentation and also got some great tips from fellow attendees. I recommend getting online access if you could not attend in person.

I really enjoyed the show, and would love to attend again next year at Ironside. The venue was the perfect size, the group attending was the perfect size. It allowed me to make personal connections with key people. Not like VRMA, which is amazing, but it's too large and rushed.

“Well organised & slick. The length of each presentation was really good … not too long but with enough time for good content and even break out time for networking … all in all resulted in good flow.”

“Value-packed, extremely well organised and timed, and loved the "intimate" setting (fewer, "high caliber people/ quality over quantity). The content was relevant and industry-specific, I learned a lot! And enjoyed it too!"
