Ashgate at the KL International Book Fair 2013

Posted by Richard Dowling, Sales Director

Ashgate attended the Kuala Lumpur Book Fair this year for the 9th year in a row. The Fair runs for nine days, and it’s an opportunity for us to meet with our library customers and showcase our new books. The sales reps from the library suppliers we work with bring librarians to our stand to look at the books we have on display and at our catalogues, and to place orders.

Richard at the KL Book Fair 2013We took around 390 books this year which is on a par with previous years. Gower Business & Management titles proved the most popular overall, with Politics coming in second and then Islamic Studies third. Catalogues are still important and around 10% of the total orders were for titles that were not on display.
