Chidi & Chika Nwaogu To Speak At The International Publishers Association Seminar in Nairobi


Founders of Nigeria's digital publishing company, Publiseer, Chidi Nwaogu and Chika Nwaogu, will be speaking at the International Publishers Association (IPA) Seminar in Nairobi themed "Africa's Rising: Realising Africa's Potential as a Global Publishing Leader in the 21st Century".


Together with the Kenyan Publishers Association (KPA), IPA will be holding the seminar on the 14th and 15th June 2019.

The event will bring together publishers, educators, government officials, readers and writers under one roof to discuss the challenges and opportunities in the publishing industry.

"This seminar will bring together publishers, educators, government officials, readers and writers under one roof to discuss the challenges and opportunities in the publishing industry. Please find attached an invitation letter signed by the Presidents of IPA and KPA. I do hope you will join us and share your insights with us," says Bodour Al Qasimi, the incoming Vice President of the International Publishers Association.

This seminar comes after a successful seminar in Lagos in May 2018 which focused on the role of literary culture, and the challenges facing the book publishing industry in African countries.

The International Publishers Association aims to continue to present this kind of seminars across Africa, and have chosen Nairobi as its next host city. The seminar will be taking place at the Mövenpick Hotel in Nairobi, and the founders of Publiseer will be speaking at the 4th-panel discussion "Digital Transformation and Disruption in African Publishing", which will be taking place on the first day of the seminar.

The seminar will deliver critical insights on global publishing industry issues and their impact on the region. Proposed areas of discussion will include how to strengthen educational publishing in Africa; the role of technology in overcoming illiteracy; and how to bring the voice of African writers, publishers and content creators to the world. The event will include representatives from a wide geographical reach and the audience will include both regional and international publishers, editors and agents.
