Discussion on the Trade Mission to Germany

Free Webinar

Join us as members of the delegation that led the trade mission to Germany in July discuss the opportunities and market intelligence gathered during their visit.

Travelling to Berlin and Munich, the delegates heard presentations from various industry and national association representatives from both countries in order to gain an understanding of the different facets of the German publishing market. They also had one-on-one meetings with more than 100 German publishers and visited the site of the Leipzig Book Fair, one of the oldest and most important book fairs in Germany.

The hosts will share some of their major insights and experiences, which will help steer Canada FBM2020’s and Livres Canada Books’ programs and services in the lead up to Canada’s role as the Guest of Honour at the 2020 Frankfurt Book Fair.

Webinar topics will include:

  • Tips for Canadians entering the German market
  • The important role of translators and translations
  • Major themes and genres favoured by German publishers
  • Understanding the German book industry’s supply chain
  • Individual perspectives on the market

This live webinar will be followed by an interactive Q&A period with the hosts.
