The annual London Book Fair opened a “Spotlight on India” series as part of the UK India Year of Culture celebrations in India and the UK.
The spotlight marks the first event as part of India@UK2017, the official set of events being coordinated by the Indian High Commission in London and the Ministry of Culture along with a series of cultural organisations in India and the UK.
“The London Book Fair (LBF) will be working with the Indian government’s export trade body Capexil to stage an exhibiting presence over three pavilions for nearly 40 exhibitors. The enhanced Indian exhibit at this year’s Fair will showcase the global importance of India’s publishing industry, in particular its digital innovation,” an LBF statement said.
“The Indian publishing market has an overwhelming potential for growth. We’re currently investing time and resources into helping Indian-based publishers distribute their print and digital books throughout our global network of sales channels,” said David Taylor, senior vice-president of content acquisition at Ingram Content Group, one of the participants of the Spotlight on India.
