Every year in April in Earls Court (London) takes place the annual fair of the book, a meeting of the publishing and cultural market open to the public. This year, it has closes the doors the last Tuesday.
The London Book Fair is the best occasion to know a little about the publishing world; it is the global marketplace for rights negotiation and the sale and distribution of content across print, audio, TV, film and digital channels.
At The London Book Fair the entire publishing industry has been represented, with over 1500 stand from all countries of the world.
A huge amount has participated. It could be the company that can convert your book to digital, the seminar that reveals a new approach to marketing, the future-gazing presentation that transforms your strategy. But the fair could be also just a good way to spend a different day to approach to the books’ world.
Like each great event, putting people together and creating the spaces for people to make connections is the purpose of The London Book Fair.
The events program included industry awards, author interviews, showcases and much more.
It has been very interesting the conference held at the Nigerian stand: in fact, Port Hancourt in Nigeria has been the World Book Capital in 2014. The title is awared annualy by UNESCO to a city in recognition of the quality of its programs to promote the dissemination of books and encourage reading. Incheon, in South Korea, will be the next.
For the 2015 a new is planned: the fair, usually located in Earls Court, will take place at Olympia, the exhibition and conference centre in West Kensington.
