London Book Fair 2012

Last week Sarah and I attended the London Book Fair at Earls Court. The London Book Fair gives us an opportunity to meet all our contacts in the publishing world in one place. We meet everyone from printing reps to ebook retailers, distributors to publishing consultants. It’s also a good chance to see what other publishers are doing and share ideas with each other. We only visited the book fair for one day this year but had a busy day of meetings.

This year the market focus was China and over 180 Chinese publishers attended the Book Fair. There was a special area entirely devoted to China which highlighted the importance of this growing market. There were also various talks and seminars from Chinese authors and publishers. Next year the featured country will be Turkey and no doubt we’ll be reporting on their participation this time next year.
