Register Now 

The London Book Fair is the spring season can’t-miss opportunity to meet publishers, rights managers, distributors, wholesalers, booksellers, and literary agents from around the world. The fair boasts over 30,000 publishing professionals and it is the venue for both maximizing and learning about rights sales given that it simultaneously provides a selling platform to exhibitors from over 100 countries while holding over 100 different seminars and events.

The Canada Stand is once again located in the same prime spot as last year on the ground floor of the Olympia Exhibition Centre in the general trade section.  

Given that the cost of space in London has risen sharply since the pandemic, we were only able to reserve a 65 m2 space. In order to allow as many exhibitors as possible on the Canada Stand at the 2024 London Book Fair, we are currently only offering a half-stand option instead of a full stand. Exhibitors wishing to register for an additional half-stand will be informed of possible availability on December 18, 2023. If you wish to register for an additional half stand, please email Mariana Bianchini, Programs and Events Officer, as soon as possible.

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

Promotional details on flights through Air Canada will be available shortly.

Options

Half Stand with Shared Table $1,815 (1 metre wide)   

Note: Exhibitors interested in registering for an additional half stand will be informed of any availability on December 18, 2023.

The Half Stand package includes:

  • 1 exhibitor pass per sharing exhibitor
  • 1 table and 4 chairs (shared by reservation with partner exhibitor)
  • 4 display shelves per sharing exhibitor (1 metre wide each)
  • locking cabinet (shared with another exhibitor)

  • consolidated shipping at publisher’s expense
  • set-up and tear-down
  • reception desk service
  • Wi-Fi access
  • and regular updates on important information as the opening date nears.

 

Pied-à-terre $1,760    

Publishers have different strategies when it comes to determining the most efficient and cost-effective way to attend a fair. Some prefer walking the floor to set up meetings than exhibiting books on their own stand. The pied-à-terre option offers those publishers a shared meeting area with tables and chairs at which to do business.

The Pied-à-terre package includes:

  • 1 exhibitor pass
  • use of the shared meeting area by reservation
  • listing in the official print and online fair catalogue and Livres Canada Books website and directory
  • reception desk service
  • Wi-Fi access
  • and regular updates on important information as the opening date nears.

Registration to the Pied-à-terre option is limited to one representative per exhibitor. Use of the shared meeting area is by reservation only.

The Pied-à-terre option does not include signage or display shelving.

 

Display Title $385/title

Ideal for publishers who can’t attend the fair but still want to exhibit their titles on the Canada Stand, the Display Title option is a great way of testing the market for specific titles. Books are displayed face out, information on titles is given out to all interested visitors, and any leads collected on your behalf are forwarded to you after the fair.

The Display Title package includes:

  • shipping fees
  • face-out display space for each title
  • collection of business leads

Please use the registration form to select this option and download this Display Title form to provide us with the ISBN and rights information for your title. Please email the completed form to Mariana Bianchini, Programs and Events Officer.

Registration and Payment

Space on the Canada stand is limited and is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Publishers interested in exhibiting on the Canada stand at the 2024 London Book Fair should fill out the registration form and submit payment in full as soon as possible.

Please note: You will receive an additional email from Mariana Bianchini, Programs and Events Officer, to confirm your final reservation on December 18. After this date, registration is non-refundable. Exhibitors who cancel their registration remain liable for full payment.

Any additional furnishings or accessories (including badges) will be charged back to the exhibitor. Prices are available upon request.
