Book Fairs

Not to be confused with book festivals, these are international trade fairs where publishers and agents gather to sell book rights (eg for translation, film, tv, games etc). Lots of other people from the industry also attend to promote their services and make contacts and deals.

In a normal year, Publishing Scotland organises collective stands for its members at the Bologna Children's Book Fair, the London Book Fair and the Frankfurt Book Fair.

Our members also attend book fairs all over the world - often with the help of Go-See funding.
