The "Liber 2017" International Book Fair opened its doors on 4 October at Madrid's IFEMA Center. About 600 industry professionals from 80 countries meet on October 4 to 6 in the 35th edition of the Spanish-language book fair. Participants included the Salesian publishing houses "CCS" and "EDEBÉ", in Liber 2017 to present their new publications to industry professionals. "It's a place where we can establish contacts, present new books and plan next year's campaign with distributors from Latin America, and it gives us a chance to review content to fit to each of these markets. (...) We have exclusive distributors in all Latin American countries," said Antonio Garrido, General Manager of EDEBÉ.
"We are projecting the company towards the international market, so our Spanish catalog is known in other countries, such as Mexico or Colombia, where we have developed co-editions with local publishers. This year we were also in the Dominican Republic and have worked in various parts of the Southern Cone of America," said Ricardo Martín, CCS sales manager.
