This exciting initiative, taking place 6-9 March 2023 in Bologna, organized in collaboration with the Italian Publishers Association (AIE), was launched in 2021 to run in parallel to the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, providing a rights trading opportunity for the wider general trade audience across the global publishing industry.
The second edition in March 2022 was a very welcome physical event, co-located with Bologna Children’s Book Fair. Exciting exhibiting opportunities were available, with enticing offers for general trade publishers and others in this sphere. Alongside the exhibition were professional industry training events such as: How to Sell Rights; Call Your Agent: How to Become a Successful Literary Agent; a Translation rights forum; plus a Jackets off design award; Author Ambassador programme, a topical seminar programme, and a hosted bookseller initiative.
March 2023 will bring all this and more for all those involved in general trade publishing.
