Austin Macauley Publishers are Celebrating Market Focus: Sharjah at The London Book Fair 2020

Press Release: February 28, 2020

This Independent Publisher will be showcasing their Arabic language titles alongside their US and UK publications.

After a successful 2019 of attending fairs all over the globe, Austin Macauley Publishers are planning on having another busy year, starting with The London Book Fair on the 10th – 12th March. This year The London Book Fair are hosting Sharjah as their special guest and Market Focus. This gives Austin Macauley the chance to showcase their amazing Arabic titles and celebrate their already strong cultural connection with the UAE.  Already residing in the UAE and being one of the first publishers to attain an office in the Sharjah Publishing City, Austin Macauley also set up a pop-up bookstore within the ‘Americas’ section of the world's leading multicultural amusement park; Global Village in October 2019. Jade Robertson, International Publishing Director and one of the most influential women of the UAE 2019 (Arabian Business Magazine), is said to be “elated and excited for the opportunities ahead.” LBF’s Market Focus is a truly global celebration of literature and publishing. HE Ahmed bin Rakkad Al Ameri, Chairman of SBA, said:

“We believe in the power of books to foster knowledge, broaden horizons and open dialogue. London is the publishing capital of the world and at LBF 2020 we will present Sharjah’s unique cultural journey, that has flourished and expanded beyond the Gulf to establish itself as a global hub. We will showcase the growth in our local and regional publishing sector, and SBA’s specific efforts to boost the number of new translations into and out of Arabic, which are the bedrock of cross-cultural exchange between cultures.”

The London Book Fair is one of the biggest events in the industry and will allow the ever-growing independent publishing house to meet with authors, important business contacts and associations. Last year, the event attracted over 25,000 publishing professionals who wish to learn, network and begin a successful year of business. Austin Macauley are excited to be innovators within this growing market and are looking forward to gaining more exposure around their Arabic titles published within the World Book Capital. Their dedicated team are excited to attend this huge event and will be at stand 6C90. Whether you’re a potential or existing author, or a business looking for information, feel free to come over say hello or get in touch to arrange a meeting. Austin Macauley are also accepting submissions for both UK and Arabic publications all year around, so the fair is a fantastic opportunity for first-time authors to ask any questions about the publishing process. Austin Macauley will be hosting network drinks on Tuesday 10th March at 5:00 PM where everyone is welcome to pop in and have a chat!
