Audiobooks and podcasts are one the fastest growing segments of the book market. The global demand for audio content is increasing and, its 2019 survey, the Audio Publishers Association reported growth figures for the American market of over 20% on the previous year.
The Bologna Children’s Book Fair aims to provide a place for discussion with some of the most interesting players on the international audio scene. For this reason, BCBF is launching the Audio Lounge, a shared space that hosts publishers producing audio content, production and recording studios and audio streaming platforms from all over the world.
Furthermore, BCBF welcomes the Audio Speed Date – a programme of free personal meetings which allows all interested parties to present their projects, ask questions and confront with the companies from the Audio Lounge.
