This exciting new initiative, organized in collaboration with the Italian Publishers Association (AIE), was launched in 2021 to run in parallel to the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, with the aim of reaching a wider professional general trade audience across the global publishing industry.
The inaugural event was virtual only, comprising conferences and online events. The second edition in March 2022 will be a very welcome physical event, co-located with Bologna Children’s Book Fair. Exciting exhibiting opportunities are available now, with enticing offers for general trade publishers and others in this sphere. Alongside the exhibition will be professional industry events such as: How to Sell Rights; a Literary Translation rights forum with matchmaking; Jackets off design award; Author Ambassador, and a topical seminar programme.
