2019 London Book Fair

http://www.londonbookfair.co.uk/

March 12–14, 2019

Olympia, London

Market Focus: Indonesia

The London Book Fair is the spring season can’t-miss opportunity to meet publishers, rights managers, distributors, wholesalers, booksellers, and literary agents from around the world. The fair boasts over 25,000 visitors (44% of whom are international), and it is the venue for both maximizing and learning about rights sales given that it simultaneously provides a selling platform to exhibitors from over 60 countries while holding over 250 different seminars and events. Being equally prolific in social media terms (with a whopping 26,000+ Twitter followers and over 4,500 LinkedIn members), the London Book Fair has its finger on the pulse of current global rights trends and is a must-attend event.

Stand location: 6A 100

The Canada stand is once again located in a prime spot on the ground floor of the Olympia Exhibition Centre in the general trade section.

 

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

PIED-À-TERRE $1,250     

Publishers have different strategies when it comes to determining the most efficient and cost-effective way to attend a fair. Some prefer walking the floor to set up meetings than exhibit books on their own stand. The pied-à-terre option offers those publishers a shared meeting area with tables and chairs at which to do business.

 The Pied-à-terre package includes:

  • 1 exhibitor pass
  • use of the shared meeting area by reservation
  • listing in the official print and online fair catalogue and Livres Canada Books website
  • reception desk service
  • wireless internet service
  • and regular updates on important information as the opening date nears

Registration to the pied-à-terre option is limited to one representative per exhibitor.  Use of the shared meeting area is by reservation only.

The pied-à-terre option does not include signage or display shelving.

PAY-PER-TITLE $250/TITLE

Ideal for publishers who can’t attend the fair but still want to exhibit their titles on the Canada Stand, the pay-per-title option is a great way of testing the market for specific titles. Books are displayed face out, information on titles is given out to all interested visitors, and any leads collected on your behalf are forwarded to you after the fair.

The Pay-per-title package includes:

  • shipping
  • face-out display space for each title
  • collection of business leads

OTHER STAND/IRC

Exhibitors on their own stand or on a distributor’s stand and those working from the International Rights Centre are encouraged to register with Livres Canada Books. Registration is free and includes listings in the print and online Livres Canada Books directory, and regular updates on important information as the opening date nears. To register, select “Other stand/IRC” for the stand option on the registration form.

Exhibitors on their own stand are responsible for making all arrangements directly with fair authorities and/or service providers for space rental, stand furnishings, exhibitor passes, and listings in the fair catalogue.

Space on the Canada stand is limited and is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
