Allow me to proudly invite you to several events and reports about latest developments in international publishing which we prepared for the Frankfurt Book Fair – as examples of our work in the past year.
This is the world of global publishing as we see it today:
This map was drawn based on the brand new report “The Global Map of Publishing Markets 2012”, which we prepared on behalf of the International Publishers Association (IPA). You can find it, together with a brief analysis on current trends on IPA’s www.internationalpublishers.org or at www.booklab.info .
A second study, the “Global Ebook Markets” report will provide rich ressources and analysis in much more detail, on how digital is growing, not just in the English language sphere, but also in Europe and globally.
It is presented at the TOCFrankfurt conference on Tuesday, October 9, 2012 (http://tocfrankfurt.com/2012-program ), with two different panel: One on “Outsmarting Piracy”, and the other on “Where next?”. The report will be available for download for free from Tuesday at http://shop.oreilly.com .
What are, overall, in the perspective of leading companies, the relevant trends of that industry, and who are the drivers and the actors? This will be discussed at the
Frankfurt CEO panel: Disruption and New frontier.
Wednesday, October 10, 2012, 14:30 to 16:00,

And for a more indepth approach, we invite you at this special event:

Forum Dialogue, Hall 5.1 A 962.
This debate will introduce the brand new “Research Centre” of the Sharjah International Book Fair, with two studies that we could carry out recently, a thorrough analysis on reading habits in the UAE, and on the emerging UAE publishing market, a the crossroads between Europa, Spouth Asia and the Arab world, and as a hub to an exciting region for culture and business in full change.
As publishing goes digital & global, we have the numbers, and share the insights.
Looking forward to seeing you in Frankfurt!
