GLOBALOCAL Talk #3: Go Global!

The business of rights, the procurement of titles for translation, the licensing of works for other media are an important aspect of extending the revenue stream of the core business of a publisher by increasing the title’s profitability.  German Book Office New Delhi presents “GLOBALOCAL Talks” as a forum for engaging with new trends in the trade. “GLOBALOCAL Talks” bring together the most impressing “doers” from the trade to present their ideas and experiences. Since Ideas are the most powerful tools people have, this is an endeavour to present these ideas and stimulate conversations on the changing face of the content industry.

“Through the GLOBALOCAL Talk 2016,  endeavour to understand what is the future of the rights trade in a world of globalised content and what are the opportunities unfolding in mature markets of Europe as well as popular markets like China,”  GBO New Delhi in its newsletter.

According to the organisers, GLOBALOCAL Talk 2016, held during NDWBF, will highlight interesting rights territories like France, UK, China, Germany and India. Speakers from these markets will offer an in-depth analysis and updates on their markets, both print and digital, along with guidance on how to successfully buy and sell rights in their territories.

The session will also have insights into providing top tips on how to successfully contract rights.
