The London Book Fair is opening next week
If you’re in London next week, you might have an hour or two to visit the London Book Fair, now considered as second only to its Frankfurt cousin. It’s deemed to be “a mecca for European publishers, booksellers, rights agents and media trend spotters”. So all you would-be media moguls had better get your asses to Olympia Exhibition Centre where it’s all happening, with more than 25,000 publishers, booksellers, literary agents, librarians, media and industry suppliers from over 100 countries attending. How does it work? Book publishers come to London to publicise their upcoming titles and to sell and purchase subsidiary and translation rights for books from other publishers.
Over 1700 international exhibitors participate in The London Book Fair. The fair itself covers a range of interests and markets within the publishing industry, including rights negotiation and the sales and distribution of content across print, audio, TV, film and digital channels, as well as more traditional forms of print publishing. Our sister company, ER Books, won’t be taking a stand this year, but next year, who knows…?
