Representation at International Book Fairs

When it comes to book rights, face-to-face meetings are still the number one way that foreign rights agents connect to buy and sell titles. These important meetings take place at international book fairs, like the Frankfurt Book Fair, the London Book Fair, the Beijing International Book Fair, and the Bologna Children’s Book Fair.

Having representation for your titles at these international book fairs is crucial, as many of the deals that rights agents work on throughout the rest of the year are generated during the meetings that take place at the fairs. This is also where personal relationships with buyers are forged and trust is built.

At DropCap, while we believe that technology can enhance the rights-buying process, we know that software alone can never take the place of real, long-term relationships with buyers and face-to-face sales meetings. This is why all of our clients receive in-person representation at the world’s largest book fairs. Learn more about how we sell foreign language rights.
