Exporting to Mexico

As an established strategic trade partner, Mexico has become an ever-important market for Canadian businesses, including publishers looking for opportunities to export their books abroad.

A dynamic publishing industry in its own right, Mexico is also a bridge to other Spanish-language markets in the Americas and has become a dominant force in Spanish–language publishing across the globe.

Join literary agent, Piedad Saenz, for a webinar exploring the ins and outs of the Mexican book market, including:

  • the state of publishing, key players, distribution, and retail
  • reading and book buying habits
  • the trade, children’s, and education markets
  • the fast-growing digital publishing market
  • Mexico’s rich network of national and local book fairs
  • and much more!

Presentation in French.
