International Publishing Meetings

International Publishing Meetings

 

Livres Canada Books holds virtual international meetings in collaboration with publishing and cultural organizations around the world to help publishers generate new connections outside of those made at in-person book fairs. These events provide Canadian publishers with opportunities to build their network of contacts and create opportunities to buy and sell rights.

This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.
