THE MARKETS – Global Publishing Summit 2015, the new conference to kick off the Frankfurt Book Fair (14-18 October 2015) will set the stage for the world's largest industry event. The one-day conference will focus on seven international book markets, which will be introduced by industry experts and analysed from various points of view, with the aim of initiating deals on the spot as well as bringing to light potential areas for business.
For each of the seven book markets, one segment with its specific features and trends will be highlighted: China - International partnerships and joint ventures; Germany - Academic publishing and specialist information; Indonesia - Trade publishers; Mexico - Trade publishers; South Korea - Education and children's books; Turkey - The total market; and USA - Digital publishing and innovation.
Each of the seven selected markets will be presented by an analyst from the respective country, who will explain and elucidate the market's potential and the business opportunities for which it is best suited. The invited experts will provide an overview of trends and overarching market developments. Placing the individual markets in a global context, they will reveal what makes each of these markets unique and where the opportunities for business and growth lie. In addition, seven players from each market will be present, making their know-how and experience available to conference participants in smaller group discussions.
