New York Rights Fair to debut in the US

BolognaFiere Spearheads a New Rights and Licensing Fair in New York City.

BolognaFiere is pleased to announce the launch of a new copyright trade and licensing show dedicated to publishing, international rights and licensing. The show will bring US publishers and agents together with their global counterparts and will attract booksellers and librarians to both groups. The new event is scheduled for May 30 – June 1, 2018 and will be held in midtown Manhattan.

BolognaFiere is dedicated to fostering cross-cultural cooperation and international trade among publishers,” said Franco Boni President of BolognaFiere. “With the debut of this new trade show, BolognaFiere extends its reach to cultivate new relationships and global business alliances among publishers.

Key strategic US-based partners creating a truly global event will include:

Publishers Weekly PW is the international news platform of the book publishing industry. It is the cosponsor, with BolognaFiere and the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, of Global Kids Connect. The third annual Global Kids Connect conference takes place on December 4, 2017 and will then move into the new event in 2018. In addition to the weekly magazine, website, e-newsletters and broadcast shows, PW publishes the PW Show Daily for book fairs in the U.S. and Europe; previews of major trade and consumer shows; and supplements devoted to international publishing.

The Combined Book Exhibit has been a marketing resource for publishers and agents at U.S. and International book fairs for almost 85 years. With its sister company, The American Collective Stand, it also organizes the USA Pavilion at every major International book fair helping publishers and agents enter new markets easily. The new event will also benefit from a strong cooperation with PubMatch, the leading online rights platform.
