What's on now Bologna Book Fair

From Monday 28th to Thursday 31st March, the cream of the publishing industry descend upon their Mecca, from author to agent, illustrators and publishers’, packagers to printers, Bologna Children’s Book Fair is the pinnacle of our publishing calendar.

We at Advocate are proud to say that Bologna 2011 is our 10th year of exhibiting, where we grow from strength to strength with between 70 to 100 face-to-face meetings direct with the industry’s best publishing houses. It is also where we generate and gather new contacts whilst strengthening relationships with our clients in turn generating/handling 2 million dollars worth in art commissioning on a global scale. This is the reason why we are Britain’s largest illustration agency – we are proud of the fact that we are the only illustration agent to take space amongst all the publishers where we are able to grab the attention of the 1300 exhibitors coming from 67 countries and countless visitors to the show.  The Bologna Children’s Book Fair is the most important international event dedicated to the children’s publishing industry and Advocate are there at the heart showcasing the best of the illustration industry.  For this, the 47th Bologna fair, we are launching new portfolios from Steve Wood, Genie Espinosa, Sophie Escabasse and Natasha Kuricheva. We look forward to seeing you at Hall 25 A159.
