Publishing house press officers are increasingly working in an international context. AVP International encourages and supports its members in networking beyond the German-speaking world. AVP International was kicked off during the London Book Fair in April 2016 with a German-English networking event, which gave press officers from German-language publishing houses the opportunity to exchange ideas with international colleagues. Happy hours at different international book fairs followed. These events grew into an international network of colleagues from European countries (like France, Italy…) and more (Mexiko, Egypt, South Afrika…). The AVP Happy Hour at the Frankfurt Book Fair has become correspondingly more international and some colleagues from other countries have been welcomed there since then.
Are you interested in the international AVP events? Stay tuned for information about an event in 2022 at London Book Fair (UK), Festival du Livre de Paris (France) or Abu Dhabi International Book Fair (UAE).
