Feria Internacional del Libro de Guadalajara

Guadalajara 2013 42849

29 November – 7 December 2014
As the most important book fair in the Spanish-speaking world, the Feria Internacional del Libro de Guadalajara (FIL) has been a very well attended meeting place and marketplace for international exhibitors, publishers, licensing managers and trade visitors for many years. Nearly 2,000 exhibitors from more than 40 countries attended the FIL in 2013. The FIL is the most important licensing trade show for the Spanish-language market. Mexican publishers account for around half of the exhibiting publishers. The large Spanish publishing groups are represented at the fair through their Mexican subsidiaries, as are many small and medium-sized independent publishers from all across Latin America. More 750,000 attendees, 20,000 trade visitors and around 300 licensing managers are expected to attend the trade visitor and public days of the fair. On the trade visitor days, the FIL Guadalajara will once again offer a broad professional programme highlighting the latest industry issues. In 2013, the Area del Libro Electrónico made its debut in the international halls, featuring e-readers and presentations by service providers.The fair is organised by the University of Guadalajara and held each year on the grounds of the Expo Guadalajara. The halls in use during the fair cover a total of 34,000 m² of space. In 2013, more than 1,000 cultural and professional events were held at the fair. The annual Guest of Honour plays an especially significant role and this designation is likely the fair’s most important marketing tool. The 2014 Guest of Honour is Argentina, with its diverse and highly professional publishing scene.

The market
Mexico is part of a large Spanish-language market that encompasses more than 400 million people in 21 countries on two continents. After Chinese, Hindi and English, Spanish is the world’s most widely spoken language. Every major Spanish-language publishing group has a presence in the market, complemented by a variety of independent publishers. At the same time, Mexico represents the most important link to Spanish-language publishers in the USA. For German publishers, Mexico, Colombia and Argentina represent the three most important partners for licensing titles into Spanish-speaking Latin America. Many licensing deals are initiated at the book fairs in Frankfurt and Guadalajara. And translation rights aren’t the only focus these days. Today film rights as well as rights for e-books, apps and products throughout the digital sector are in demand and a standard part of doing business.The German Collective Stand will be located at the entrance of the international hall (stand HH 2). On display will be the longlist nominees for the German Book Prize 2014, the German Photo Book Prize 2013, the Best German Book Design Award 2014, award-winning books from the German Architecture Museum, children’s and young adult books, a selection of titles on World War I and the works of 28 exhibitors.
