Feria Internacional de Guadalajara

Date: 28 November 2015 - 6 December 2016
Location: Expo Guadalajara

The fair
As the most important book fair for the Spanish-speaking world, for years now the Feria Internacional del Libro de Guadalajara (FIL) has been a very well-attended meeting place and business venue for international exhibitors, publishers, license managers and trade visitors. Almost 2,000 exhibitors from over 40 countries were represented at the FIL in 2013.
The fair is the most important licensing trade fair for the Spanish-speaking market. Mexican publishers account for about half of the exhibiting publishers. The largest Spanish publishing conglomerates are also represented at the fair by their Mexican subsidiaries, as are many small and medium-sized independent publishers from all over Latin America. More than 750,000 visitors, over 20,000 trade visitors and almost 300 license managers are expected to attend the fair during the days it is open to trade visitors and the general public.
As usual, for the trade-visitor days, the FIL Guadalajara is preparing an extensive professional programme dedicated to topics of current interest.

The market
Mexico is part of a large Spanish-speaking market with over 400 million people in 21 countries on two continents; after Chinese, Hindi and English, Spanish is the most-spoken language in the world. All major Spanish-speaking publishing groups are represented in the market, along with a variety of independent publishers. At the same time, Mexico represents the most important connection to Spanish-speaking publishers in the United States.
In terms of licensing to Spanish-speaking Latin America, the three most important partner countries for German publishers are Mexico, Colombia and Argentina. Many licensing deals are initiated at the Frankfurt and Guadalajara book fairs. And, for some time now, the main focus has not just been on translation rights alone. Film as well as e-book and app rights, and licenses for the entire digital sector are also in demand and traded.

The German collective stand is located at the entrance to the international hall (stand number HH 2). Also present next to the displays of the almost 40 exhibitors (Exhibitor List) is the longlist of the “German Book Prize 2015”, the “Most Beautiful German Books 2015”, children’s and young adult’s books as well as the Kloster Institut bookstore.

The supporting cultural programme is being organised by the Goethe Institute Mexico.

Participation in the fair is sponsored by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and organized by the Leipziger Messe International GmbH, Leipzig.
