Discussion on the Trade Mission to Sharjah, United Arab Emirates

Join us as members of the delegation that led the trade mission discuss the opportunities and market intelligence gathered during the mission at the Sharjah International Book Fair.

The hosts share their experiences and suggest ways of maximizing the opportunities available in this market. How should we build on the professional networking initiated during this mission? How to increase the presence of the Canadian books in the United Arab Emirates and the Middle East?

Topics  include:

  • Licensing English-language and translation rights
  • Selling French-language titles in the United Arab Emirates and the Middle East
  • Individual perspectives of the market
  • Tips for Canadians considering entering into the Emirati market
