Export Expertise

Delegates Named for the Scouting Mission to ISRAEL

Livres Canada Books will be travelling to Tel-Aviv in November to conduct a Scouting Mission of the Israeli book market. A four-member delegation, including Livres Canada Books Executive Director François Charette, Margie Wolfe (Second Story Press/ACP), Philip Cercone (McGill-Queen’s University Press/ACUP), and Barbara Creary (Éditions Dominique et compagnie), will travel to Tel-Aviv from November 22 to 26, 2015 to meet with key industry players and gain a better understanding of the book market in Israel.

The objective of the Scouting Mission is to help Canadian publishers diversify their export base by gaining enhanced knowledge of new markets. The delegation will produce a detailed report of this market’s potential for Canadian publishers’ rights and distribution sales. The delegation will also make recommendations on how Canadian publishers can best connect with business partners in this market.
