For the 3rd year in a row, the Assembly of Swiss and Francophone publishers will be held during the Geneva Book Fair. Taking the opportunity of having several Swiss and francophone publishers’ representatives, these meetings will be held over two days: the first day will examine the issues of book exportation and circulation in the Francophone space, while the second will focus on the issue of who will take over the publishing profession in Switzerland. New in 2017, practical workshops in small groups will be offered to participants. These three workshops are organised through the support of the Alliance:
- Editorial partnerships: an alternative to exportation
- Communication strategies: how to sell and promote Francophone literature?
- Exportation of books: what are the challenges? Pricing, regulations, tariff barriers and censorship.
