We are delighted that Banijay Kids & Family has placed its trust in us. Our services, including WAY production solution and Bookwire OS have become the global market standard over the last few years thanks to the great commitment of our team and consistent investments. Our ambition in France is to open up new audio opportunities for all publishers in the market. We offer a full 360° audio service from production and distribution, to marketing, therefore enabling each publisher to launch and distribute its own audio titles“, says Anne-Laure Gonet, Country Manager France at Bookwire.

Silverpoint S01 01We were looking for an experienced audiobook partner with a proven international distribution track record. Bookwire understand our need for high-quality audiobook production, as well as our strong international ambition. We are thrilled to expand the popularity of our series in audiobook format and bring them to fans and new global audiences“, says Annick Bizet, New Business and Strategic Alliances Director at Banijay Kids & Family.

Bookwire opened an office in the French capital in July 2021. The objective is to strengthen its international activities and to offer French publishers a personalized accompaniment and powerful tool to launch themselves on the growing French audiobook market. Bookwire OS allows publishers to gain autonomy, flexibility and performance.
