The Canada Stand Advantage


The Canada Stand offers a range of affordable options designed to help you effectively promote your titles at the Guadalajara International Book Fair. The full exhibitor’s package on the Canada Stand is less expensive than the comparable package offered by the fair, and includes additional services like a staffed information desk, logistics and stand construction.


The Canada Stand is always a popular destination for exhibitors at international book fairs. The 36 m2 centrally- located and open-concept stand features colorful graphics and ample display space sure to draw in visitors.


Livres Canada Books takes the worry out of exhibiting overseas. We work with fair service providers to handle paperwork, logistics, and promotion, so you can concentrate on business and maximize your time at the Fair.


The Embassy of Canada in Mexico will retain the services of a publishing consultant to help schedule appointments.

  • 1 exhibitor pass per sharing exhibitor
  • 1 table and 4 chairs (shared with partner exhibitor)
  • 4 display shelves per sharing exhibitor (1m wide each)
