London Book Fair
The London Book Fair (LBF) is a large book-publishing trade fair held annually in London, England. LBF is a global marketplace for rights negotiation and the sale and distribution of content across print, audio, TV, film and digital channels. The London Book Fair has grown in size and importance over the years and is now considered as second only to the Frankfurt Book Fair as "a mecca for European publishers, booksellers, rights agents and media trend-spotters."
Over 1700 international exhibitors participate in LBF. Activities include business meetings between publishing companies, introductions of titles to readers and visitors, announcement for prizes and awards, and many workshops and seminars to discuss current issues and trends in the industry.
Attendees include authors, booksellers, distributors, literary agents, and publishers.
