Imagine what it would feel like to say my children's book was picked up by a publisher in China, and translated to Mandarin! Or my women's self-help book was picked up by a distributor in the Philippines, and now not only are women in that area being impacted by my message, but I also have a new base to build on and reach for future projects. These scenarios are the reality of the types of opportunities authors can receive when they display their book at an international book fair. It is true for two of our authors who received offers to have their books translated into Arabic, and distributed in Jordan. What could this type of opportunity do for you as an author? Let's explore the possibilities when you join us at the 52nd Annual London Book Fair.
Known as one of the largest and most important book fairs in the world for authors and publishing professionals, and "the hub of the publishing industry," the London Book Fair will be held April 18-April 20 in Olympia, London. This 3-day event is the official kickoff to the publishing season, and gathers 25,000 industry professionals- including publishers, distributers, book sellers and buyers, library representatives, agents, consultants and media from over 135 countries. The best part about all of this? You do not have to be present. Submit your book, and we'll take care of the rest. Let us represent your book in this global marketplace!
Why You Should Participate?
Access is officially granted! We are leveling the playing field, so you can showcase your book to an international audience and obtain opportunities traditionally accessed by the big boys! Unlike the U.S. publishing market, the international market is more welcoming to new, indy and self-published authors. In their world, it's more about the book and the content, than it is about the popularity of the author. Of course this helps in some instances, but it is not the main driver in determining whether or not your book will be picked up. The world is global! Let's build on that, and expand your footprint!
Establish brand awareness on a global stage when you showcase your book to an audience of 25,000+ industry professionals from 135+ countries, all actively looking to discover authors just like you! We limit the number of authors we feature so that you get maximum exposure and representation.
Our business, is your business! We will actively represent your book and negotiate rights contracts and more on your behalf.
When you sign on with us, you will also be included in our local, national and international PR and Marketing campaign that includes social media and press release distribution, pre-, post- and during the fair.
This exposure will not only shine light on your participation in the fair, but will also introduce you to new markets and increase overall awareness and engagement for your book and platform as an author.

The London Book Fair is an international book fair attended by librarians, publishers, booksellers, distributors, literary agents, and media professionals from 135+ countries; and is an opportunity to promote your book for discoverability. No direct sales are initiated at this event, instead representatives attend to collect information on books and other media they are interested in purchasing. These professionals then order in bulk through distributors like Ingram Spark to maximize their discounts; and distributors order directly from publishers; or they seek to purchase translation or subsidiary rights. We take photos of all books on display, which will be provided to you at the beginning of the expo. Due to the nature of the fair, we can report if any rights transactions are initiated, but we cannot provide feedback on how an individual book is received in the display. We will, however, give a general report on the overall display activity and the show in general.
