NYRF puts hot topics on the table, gears up for its debut

25 May - 2018

Tags from the story: New York Rights Fair.

The show kicks off at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, May 30, and runs through 3 p.m. on Friday, June 1, 2018.

Seven-figure book auctions, China’s literary consumers, Scandinavian crime fiction, European comics, the changing IP rules of the New Hollywood, crowdsourcing books, L.A. streaming giants on a buying spree, the boom in translated books, the boom in audiobooks. These are just a few of the hot topics the New York Rights Fair has planned for its debut next week at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood.

Seventy NYRF speakers are due to arrive in the city to participate in the finalized agenda, which includes 21 panel discussions along four distinct content tracks—the Global Landscape, Page to Screen, the Pillars of Rights and TALKING PICTURES: The Visual Book Now.

The New York Rights Fair programming illustrates the depth and breadth of global licensing and rights. Other sessions include innovation in international licensing of Angry Birds, what premium diversity puts on a rights sale and a detailed look at the making of global blockbusters.

158 exhibitors, including book publishers, literary agencies, film producers and scouts from 20 countries, including the U.S., the U.K., Italy, France, the UAE, Korea, China, Japan will take over the Level 1 exhibit hall at the pavilion.

For the first outing of the New York Rights Fair, several thousands of attendees will be welcomed. NYRF will also be delighted to open its doors to BookExpo participants and thrilled to complement them with the rights-side of the publishing business. Exhibitors, rights professionals and members of the media holding BookExpo badges are all welcomed at no charge to the New York Rights Fair. As well, New York Rights Fair badge-holders are entitled to free access to BookExpo. Free shuttle buses will run between the Javits Center and the Metropolitan Pavilion beginning at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, May 30, 2018.
