Market Focus 2012

Market Focus 2012

Celebrating 9 years of Market Focus

The London Book Fair Market Focus initiative aims to showcase major new markets and provide a platform for UK and international publishers to liaise with their foreign counterparts, and seek out and capitalise on new business partnerships.

At LBF 2012 China Market Focus and the associated cultural programme placed a spotlight on contemporary Chinese authors and China as an important publishing arena.

Over 180 publishers came from China as part of the professional programme, alongside 21 Chinese authors, in partnership with the British Council who have been our Market Focus strategic partner for the last five years. 

Turkey will be Market Focus country in 2013 - find out more here...
