Livres Canada Books, in collaboration with the Embassy of Canada in Mexico, the Trade Commissioner Service, and International Trade at Canadian Heritage, is supporting the presence of Canadian publishers in Guadalajara this year. Canada Stand exhibitors can register for free at this year’s edition of the Fair.

The Guadalajara International Book Fair is the most important publishing event in Ibero-America. In 2022, 2,173 exhibitors from 49 countries and more than 14,197 international professionals participated.

Exhibiting on the Canada Stand is your opportunity to sell and buy rights, generate new contacts, strengthen existing relationships, and discover new business opportunities.

Note that space on the stand is limited to 16 publishers who will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Canada Stand Advantage

The Canada Stand offers a range of services like a staffed information desk, logistics, and stand construction.  


The Canada Stand is always a popular destination for exhibitors at international book fairs. The 36 m2 centrally-located and open-concept stand features colorful graphics and ample display space sure to draw in visitors.


Livres Canada Books takes the worry out of exhibiting overseas. We work with fair service providers to handle paperwork, logistics, and promotion, so you can concentrate on business and maximize your time at the Fair.

The Embassy of Canada to Mexico will retain the services of a publishing consultant to help schedule appointments.
