Jerusalem International Book Fair 2013

The Jerusalem International Book Fair February 10-15, 2013 is an opportunity for U.S. publishers to display books and titles to writers, publishers, editors and literary agents from around the world. The Commercial Service at the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv has worked diligently with a major Israeli publishing firm Tzomet Sfarim to help U.S. publishing firms sell books and titles, and get exposure at this major publishing event.

Israel is a dynamic market for U.S. publishers, with the largest sales in textbooks, non-fiction, fiction, reference and secondhand titles. PREFERED GENRES include fiction, psychology, cookbooks, thrillers, business and travel books.

Tzomet Sfarim invites U.S. publishing firms to send them titles that they wish to promote at the JIBF. After review by the Import Manager and Buyer, Tzomet Sfarim will communicate directly with those U.S. firms about titles they are interested in and arrange book ordering and exposure at the event. Tzomet Sfarim will discuss prices according to space size and number of books to be displayed (range will be $300-$500).
