As of 2018, the New York Rights Fair will become the “Official Rights Fair” of BookExpo.
Following the 55th edition of the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, the New York Rights Fair – created by BolognaFiere in partnership with Publishers Weekly and The Combined Book Exhibit – signed an agreement with BookExpo allowing the aforementioned events to work together to better serve the publishing industry.
This agreement will allow NYRF and BookExpo to work together to provide the publishing industry a gateway to the US publishing market thus opening more opportunities to better suport the dialogue between international and American publishing.
NYRF and BookExpo will offer the following to all attendees starting in 2018:
*Badge holders will have full acess to BookExpo Exhibition Floor
*BookExpo rights center will move to NYRF and will become the official rights center.
*Rights oriented exhibitors will have the option to move to premium space at NYRF.
*BookExpo attendees with a Rights badge will have full access to NYRF
*Shuttle buses between BookExpo and NYRF
