In 2014, the ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival had an idea: to create a B2B platform running in parallel with the festival. In the 4 years since its inception, it is fast emerging as a nerve centre for the South Asian publishing industry.
Jaipur BookMark (JBM) brings together stakeholders of the book trade from across the world – publishers, literary agents, writers, translators, translation agencies and book sellers. It gives them an opportunity not just to ‘’talk business” through relevant sessions and focused roundtables but also provides the right and fruitful atmosphere to inspire conversations and a space for one-on-one meetings and networking. This intimacy forges relationships and allows the occasional contract to be signed too.
JBM is the ultimate South Asian book conclave which provides an “edge” of opportunities to those in the publishing industry on the lookout for new ideas and collaborations.
