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