Contact List of the Livres Canada Books Trade Mission to Mexico for Scholarly Publishers (2022)


Livres Canada Books organised a trade mission to Mexico from August 30 to September 4, 2022, which focused on the scholarly book market. A delegation of six publishers, including Apprentissage Illimité, Les Presses de l’Université de Montréal, University of British Columbia Press, University of Manitoba Press, University of Toronto Press, and Wilfrid Laurier University Press, accompanied by Livres Canada Books staff, participated in La Feria Internacional del Libro de las Universitarias y los Universitarios (FILUNI).
The publishers met with key players in the sector (over 50 meetings) in order to gain a better understanding of the Latin American market for scholarly books.
As with every mission, the delegation has prepared a list for Canadian publishers comprising resource persons for rights sales and distribution. A follow-up webinar was also held in which the delegation presented recommendations for the best way for Canadian publishers to establish connections with trading partners in this market.
