Libro International books will be on show at the Taipei International Book Exhibition next week, when Oratia Media takes its place on the New Zealand collective stand at Taiwan's leading book event.
Supported by the Publishers Association of New Zealand and Creative New Zealand, the stand will allow us to showcase our authors to professional visitors as well as Taiwanese readers (the exhibition's first day on 5 February is for professional visitors, then it opens to the general public from 6 - 10 February). New Zealand is preparing to be Guest of Honour at the event in 2015.
In addition to publishers from Taiwan, Peter Dowling will be meeting with colleagues from elsewhere in Asia, as well as further afield. Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Thailand are the countries of focus at this year's exhibition - so we're looking to make inroads into these large and affluent book markets.
