The Frankfurt Book Fair is the world's largest and most important publishing event with 7,100 exhibitors from over 100 countries, 270,000 visitors + 9,300 journalists and bloggers in attendance last year. Displaying your book at Foreword's Independent Press Collective Stand is a smart way to get it on the radar of foreign rights agents and publishers who will be meeting us for appointments and/or browsing titles on the show floor.
By exhibiting in the Foreword cooperative booth, your titles stand to generate rights interest from any number of publishers (typically, a foreign rights deal includes a non-refundable advance and a royalty rate of 7–8%). So, with no out of pocket expense—except for the exhibit fee to have your title displayed at the Foreword booth—you stand to earn an unexpected windfall. Representatives from Foreword will direct visiting agents and reps to the appropriate shelves (books are arranged by genre) and collect business cards/contact information when interest in a certain title is expressed. Foreword will then pass on the contact info to the corresponding publisher or author. One of the additional benefits is a lifetime listing for your book in Foreword's online Rights Catalog, a valuable resource before and long after the show doors close.
The per title exhibit fee is usually $215 - we're inviting IPNE members to take $25 off, so $190. As the buchmesse is in just two weeks, reservations are due ASAP and 1 copy of each title (plus three copies of your sell sheet) are due by October 12th at the latest.
