2022 Bologna Book Fair NEW TITLE SHOWCASE: An official exhibit of the fair
Show Date:
Mar 21 - Mar 24, 2022
Registration & Display Copy Deadline:
Monday, Feb 28, 2022
Bologna, Italy

For 57 years, the Bologna Children’s Book Fair has been the leading children’s publishing event with over 1400 exhibitors and 30,000 professional visitors each year. J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter series was discovered at this event.


In 2021 the Bologna Books Plus was introduced to the fair aimed at a much wider general adult trade audience led by the former team members of the London Book Fair.  Leveraging the strength and reputation of the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, the addition of the Bologna Books Plus will make this fair a “must attend” event for all concerned. 


The Bologna Book Fair has asked the Combined Book Exhibit to mount a New Title Showcase (NTS) as an official exhibit of the fair positioned in a prominent location.  The NTS will be heavily promoted before and during the fair.  Included will be a printed exhibit catalog with all titles and contact information and handed out free of charge during the fair. The NTS will also include an online searchable catalog that will be active for a period of two years.


Those attending will be publishers, agents, librarians, booksellers, teachers, translators, illustrators, and media, including distributors and wholesalers from around the world.  In addition, representatives from production companies and movie studios will attend as well.  Also expected are thousands of virtual visitors to the fair who will have access to the online catalog.
