The rights place for children’s content.

The 53rd annual Bologna Children’s Book Fair hosts nearly 25,000 international professional trade reps and agents from 75 countries who scout for gems and do deals on a 20,000 square meter show floor. At this fair, children’s books means picture books, juvenile, middle reader and young adult fiction and nonfiction, and the show floors of the Bologna fair are awash with some of the most astounding art and artists in the world.

IBPA members can purchase single-title display space with Foreword Reviews at Children’s Books USA, the longest running collective stand at the fair and host to more established independent presses for over thirty years. Publishers with 8+ titles are encouraged to organize a larger space with room to meet, display your backlist and forthcoming titles, be included in the official show guide.

Books can be registered for this trade show here. Be sure to contact Joanne Kenny at for the IBPA member discount code prior to registering.
