Over 70 Catalan enterprises at Bologna Children's Book Fair

Having been guest of honour at last year's Bologna Children's Book Fair, a total of 72 Catalan enterprises including publishing houses, associations, illustrators and industry institutions specialised in children's books will be exhibiting at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair thanks to the stand made available by the Catalan Institute for Cultural Companies (ICEC). The stand gives a cohesive image of the sector and offers professionals a business forum for their activities at the fair with every facility.

The fair will take place from 26 to 29 March in the Italian city of Bologna. Having been running for more than 50 years, the Bologna Children's Book Fair has the greatest international reach of all children's book events; the place where industry professionals go to buy and sell rights and unearth new talent.

The participation of Catalan publishers, illustrators and literary agents in the fair is just one of a series of activities the Ministry of Culture is undertaking to foster the internationalisation of the Catalan publishing industry. With this aim, the Ministry of Culture regularly attends major book industry events like Bologna, including Frankfurt Book Fair, Guadalajara International Book Fair (Mexico) and this year, for the first time, the London Book Fair.

At 13:00 on Monday, 26 March there will be a reception at the stand to foster networking between Catalan professionals and international delegates visiting the fair.
