Market Focus - Poland

  • A Celebration of Poland

    The London Book Fair Market Focus initiative has done much to open doors, creating both commercial and cultural partnerships around the world since it was first introduced in 2004. The objective of the Market Focus is to put the spotlight on publishing trade links with the country or region that is showcased, highlighting its publishing industry, and the opportunities for conducting business with the rest of the world.

    Poland was Market Focus country for 2017, highlighting the country’s dynamic publishing industry and to increase awareness of its long literary traditions.

    “Poland has a rich cultural and literary heritage and with over 32,480 published titles a-year it continues to be a major player, a significant importer and exporter of translated works, and an innovator in the digital space. It’s a great time to be working in or doing business with the Polish publishing industry.”
    Jacks Thomas, Director of The London Book Fair
