Selling Rights at The London Book Fair

The International Rights Centre (IRC) is where rights professionals meet to conduct business – selling rights - during a critical buying time for the industry.

The IRC is where those titles, projects, films, ideas and characters that we might later see in our bookshops, in an app, on a game, or in the cinema often begin their journey into the public realm.

The IRC gives agents, scouts and publishers the perfect opportunity to meet face-to-face with new and existing contacts. It offers private and comfortable meeting spaces with custom-built lockers, tables and chairs, exclusive catering services and an appointment-only entrance system.

Introduction to Rights Conference

If you’re a rights professional who is new to the business of selling rights, you might also enjoy our Introduction to Rights conference. A half-day workshop one day before the fair, this conference is designed for those new to the business and has proved to be an invaluable and incredibly insightful session. The programme offers the skills and knowledge needed to make the most of every rights opportunity, vital in this ever-changing publishing and content creation environment. 

The London Book Fair

For next year’s event, The London Book Fair is back in its home, Olympia London. We can’t wait to see you all in person.
