Book World Prague

The Publishing, Media & Entertainment (PME) Team offered an opportunity for U.S. publishers to exhibit titles in our annual U.S. Pavilion at the Book World Prague catalog show, which took place May 2015.

We help you gain and maximize your exposure in the Czech market and match your titles with interested publishers. No need to travel, just send us your catalogues and titles, and we exhibit them for you.


“Yes, please, sign Quirk up for the Prague Book World Catalog Show again. It provides some of the best and most detailed leads we get from any US Commercial Service event, and we'd be delighted to continue our participation”  - Katherine McGuire,  Quirk Books, PA


A nation of avid readers, the Czech Republic ranks among the world’s top countries in terms of the number of titles published annually per capita. Translations account for more than one third of the total Czech book production, and its share continues to rise, ranking Czechs among the world’s top consumers of translated texts.

Best prospects for U.S. publishers in the Czech market include:

  • Contemporary American Literature
  • Social and Human Sciences
  • Thrillers and Suspense
  • Spiritual and Self-Help
  • Parenting, Family, and Child Rearing
  • Children’s Book Series ages 9-13

Cost to register was $200 for 5 titles, and $40 for each additional title

By exhibiting titles in the Prague Book Fair Catalogue Show, publishers received:

  • Inclusion in the Prague Book Fair catalogue
  • Targeted list of contacts
  • Online promotion through our U.S. Embassy website
  • Post-show follow-up and trade leads provided to U.S. participants

*All titles are subject to prior review before acceptance to ensure that they will be the best fit for the region. After we have accepted your participation we will provide our mailing address.

*You will be able to send the titles by APO mail at domestic shipping rates, which takes 2-3 weeks to get to Prague.
