Formerly MarketSquare Budapest, MarketSquare Europe offers convenience and affordability for publishers’ rights and licensing sales and publisher and retailer training between other general-market book fairs.
Rights & Licensing
While most popular within Europe, providers around the world are welcome at this three-day event presented in cooperation between CBA and CLC International. With two full days of rights and licensing negotiations, MarketSquare Europe extends market reach presenting internationally renowned Christian authors and new voices to grow distribution and sales aligned with ministry. This year, sales sessions are Monday and Tuesday, 16-17 April. See the list of Publisher Representatives attending.
Free Banquet, New Worship Time
In response to attendee requests, a special time of worship is part of the Tuesday banquet, which is free to registered attendees. Ivano Cramerotti of CLC will lead worship for the gathering. Hear his testimony.
A day of training and education will be on Wednesday, 18 April. It includes two sessions on marketing for publishers and retailers, a panel discussion on the future of Christian literature distribution, and a follow-up session on contracts to maximize partnerships and sales. CLC’s private leadership conference follows MarketSquare on Thursday and Friday.
MarketSquare Europe registration is free to CBA members, including the MarketSquare banquet, training, and two days of rights and licensing sessions. For nonmembers, registration is €20. Members must still register.
The 2017 Budapest event drew more than 60 attendees representing 18 countries and more than 30 publishers were represented. In addition to face-to-face conversations, the added training day and the smaller event size have been attendee highlights.
