The Frankfurt Book Fair is the single largest international rights sales event in book publishing. Each year, many independent publishers display their titles and catalogs at the show in IBPA’s cooperative booth. Those who do look forward to receiving the collected leads, but then it becomes up to them, the publishers, to take the next steps. So, how to proceed?

In this special IBPA webinar, rights specialist Cat Russo will provide tips and advice on how to follow up from the Frankfurt Book Fair in order to move translation and other subsidiary rights agreements forward. She will also spend time answering your specific questions during a moderated Q&A.
