  • • It provides an opportunity to meet with a wide variety of professionals in the Czech book market, for example publishers, literary agents, distributors, booksellers and others.
  • • A cost-effective way to do business as Book World is offering a table free of charge for professional guests to use in the Centre.
  • • Free internet access is available to enable the visiting professional to keep in touch with the office.
  • • Pre-marketing and B2B support; we can assist the visiting professional by recommending appropriate contacts in the Czech book market as well as helping to arrange meetings before the fair.

Along with the above offer we can also provide you with a follow-up service so that any relevant contact data collected throughout the fair will be forwarded to you. Unfortunately we are unable to return the books sent to us for this service.
