What is ALDUS
ALDUS (named after 15th century’s humanist and innovative publisher Aldo Manuzio) is the European Book Fairs’ network, aimed at fostering the internationalization of publishing companies, rights exchange for translations and training opportunities for book professionals, with a focus on the digital shift.
ALDUS network originates from a consortium made of the two leading B2B International bookfairs (Frankfurt and Bologna) and a rich variety of national book fairs (Rome, Vilnius, Riga, Lisbon and Bucharest). Starting from this kernel, the network is expanding to new members with the objective to reach a pan-European level. New engaging events Book fairs are an important occasion for building capacities through professional and cultural programmes, especially in the area of internationalisation, translations, digital shift and audience development. By experimenting with new events formats, more interactive and engaging, ALDUS supports book fairs to innovate their programmes, finding new ways to engage their audience.
A community of peers
ALDUS is a community of peers, where book professionals can interact with other colleagues, sharing ideas, improve their skills and find new partnership opportunities through dedicated networking activities both online and in presence.
The Knowledge Hub
ALDUS is an online Knowledge Hub (www.aldusnet.eu) featuring in depth resources and training materials for book professionals and providing networking tools to enhance peer to peer knowledge sharing among participants and the development of professional and social relations.
