The Publishers Association’s Annual Report 2020

The Publishers Association’s Annual Report for 2020 summaries a year like no other. In 2020, we stood up to the challenges we faced with the impact of the pandemic and continued to support members amid turbulent times. There have been a number of notable moments over the past year: from delivering virtual member briefings with high profile individuals such as UK High Level Climate Action Champion for COP26, Nigel Topping, and publishing key industry reports on AI, audiobooks, as well as our annual statistics Yearbook. We were able to call for additional industry support, successfully securing the early implementation of the VAT cut on e-publications and more flexible furlough among other things.
