Frankfurt Book Fair 2019

30 Oct 2019 15:59:57

The Frankfurt Book Fair is always a special event in the Eurospan calendar, and follows a lot of careful planning and organisation by the team here months in advance. This year was busy as usual, and we welcomed the opportunity to meet and re-connect with colleagues, friends and customers travelling in from different parts of the world.

104 countries were represented at the Fair this year, giving it an international profile like no other Book Fair. The visitor count clocked up to 300,000 and around 7,450 companies set up at the Fair to exhibit their services. With these statistics in mind, it certainly is a big operation, and one that we enjoy being part of every year.

Eurospan returned to Hall 4.2 again this year, alongside a number of Science, Technical & Medical publishers. Joining the Eurospan stand this year were the American Mathematical Society and SIAM – both leading Mathematical publishers in their field. Additionally, the American Academy of Ophthalmology, American Academy of Pediatrics, American College of Physicians and Central Recovery Press also exhibited on the stand. We were also pleased to host Infobase, SLACK Incorporated and Society of Exploration Geophysicists, as well as a number of University Presses: The University of Wisconsin Press, The University of South Carolina Press, Rutgers University Press and Brookings Institution Press.

The stand was dressed with a number of books prominently displayed, across all Eurospan-subject areas. We were pleased to be able to accommodate our client-publishers on our stand, and support them with their busy meeting schedules and appointments throughout the Fair. The Eurospan team also had a number of meetings on the stand, and were available throughout the Fair for any publisher or customer queries.

Thank you to everyone who visited the stand this year, and we look forward to exhibiting again in 2020!

Studying Singapore Before 1800
Edited by Kwa Chong Guan, Peter Borschberg
Jan 2019 600pp
9789814722742 Paperback
Historians rely on Singapore's strategic position to explain its great success as a royal trading port in the 14th century, and as a British colony after 1819. What, then, accounts for the many centuries when it seemed not to thrive? This volume collects studies about Singapore before 1800, bringing together different efforts across the 20th century at reconstructing Singapore's 'missing years'.

World War II Singapore
The Chosabu Reports on Syonan
Edited by Greg Huff & Shinobu Majima
2018 520pp
9789814722629 Hardback
For forty-four months during World War II, the Japanese occupied Singapore, setting out to drastically change life on the island. As part of the occupation, the Japanese produced detailed reports on the economy. The reports were notoriously difficult to read, and so this exceptional translation by Gregg Huff and Shinobu Majima is a true linguistic accomplishment.

Andrea Benvenuti
2017 320pp
9789814722193 Paperback
Discusses the development of Australia's foreign and defense policies toward Malaya and Singapore in light of the redefinition of Britain's imperial role in Southeast Asia and the formation of new postcolonial states.

John N. Miksic
2014 300pp
9789971695583 Paperback
The overland Silk Road linking China with West Asia and Europe is a famous and fabled trade route. The sea route that was its alternative was arguably more significant, both historically and economically, and holds the greatest potential for understanding the great movements of people, ideas and goods in Asia.

London Book Fair 2019

18 Mar 2019 10:35:00

March was a busy month for the team here at Eurospan, as we took to Olympia for the 48th annual London Book Fair. We spent three busy days meeting with our customers, sales representatives and client-publishers from all over the world – exhibiting alongside over a thousand companies from sixty countries. With our brand-new stand and a great new position next to the stairs in the National Hall, the Fair was more exciting than ever.

Eurospan stand

We were pleased once again to share with four publishers, who co-exhibited on our stand. Representatives from Paradigm Education Solutions, NewSouth Publishing, Brookes Publishing Co. and Central Recovery Press travelled to London from around the US and Australia to attend meetings, meet other publishers in their field and mingle with the trade. This provided us with an opportunity to display Eurospan’s connection with these publishers, as well as with a rare excuse to catch up in the gaps of our jam-packed schedules.

Meetings on the stand

When time allowed, we all enjoyed wandering around the exhibitions and attending seminars, particularly the events and talks revolving around the market focus of Indonesia. The 2019 Fair flew by in the blink of an eye, and yet preparations are already underway at Eurospan for the London Book Fair 2020, which is to be held again in March. We can hardly wait!
