From the Taipei International Book Exhibition

Hall 1 at the Taiwan World Trade Center

Our first time at the Taipei International Book Exhibition is proving busy and educational. The show spreads across two halls at the Taipei World Trade Center with a bustling mix of trade and public visitors. The majority of exhibitors are Taiwanese publishers and booksellers, with a healthy representation of Asian and world publishers. 

Oratia Media's books are alongside five fellow Kiwi publishers - Auckland University Press, David Ling Publishing, Gecko Press, Upstart Press and Wendy Pye - on the New Zealand stand. It's proving a productive fair that we're all hoping will lead to translations and sales for our authors and illustrators, especially as next year will be New Zealand's turn as Guest of Honour.
