Christmas Roadshows 2018
Each July Leading Edge hosts state roadshows. These are free of charge to members of Leading Edge. All major Australian suppliers use the roadshows to present the best new Christmas releases for independents, enabling stores to make purchasing decisions for this most important trading period.
Arrangements are now in place for our Christmas Road Shows and you are your staff are invited to attend.
The Road Shows are a great opportunity to get acquainted with the key Christmas titles for Indie booksellers. They are also the main vehicle by which we select titles for our Summer Reads Catalogue. As in previous years, attendees will vote on all books they have seen and the top ranking books will go forward into the catalogue. We also look forward to catching up with each other, and publishers over drinks and dinner.

QLD 20 July Mercure Brisbane
