A highly anticipated B2C event
Salon Livre Jeunesse intends to reveal the full wealth and diversity of children’s books
For your business or your organisation, this show is an opportunity to reach out to over 20,000 visitors, families and, especially, thousands of influencers visiting the adjacent Salon ÉDUC.
The show is also a space for expression and debate about children’s literature, its use in the classroom, its place in education and its importance throughout the learning process.
Around forty Belgian, French, Swiss and Quebecois publishing houses are represented . These include both large publishers and small publishers brimming with creativity.
The Belgian Salon du Livre de Jeunesse will be reborn… in Brussels!
After Namur and Charleroi, we will be honouring children’s books in Brussels.
The Brussels Children’s Book fair, which is one of a kind in Belgium, will be unmissable for influencers. Running alongside the twenty-fifth EDUC Fair (professional exhibition for teaching aids), we are guaranteed to have thousands of education professionals visit our fair.
Inform parents and professionals in order to make children happy to read
Books and learning to read are, for every child, an essential step on the journey towards knowledge and culture. It is essential that each child be shown the joy of reading.
This role falls primarily to the parents and to education professionals – who may have had little or no training in the area – and to professionals in the book industry…
Salon Livre Jeunesse also gives them an opportunity to discover the advantages of children’s books, book-related activities, the multitude of themes that can be developed in the classroom and are broached in the books themselves… It advises, directs and teaches them.
The majority of education professionals visit the show.
Salon Livre Jeunesse runs alongside Salon ÉDUC. It thus offers you the possibility of considerably expanding your contacts with professionals in teaching, education and childhood (librarians, infant and primary teachers, teachers, educators, future teachers, inspectors, purchasers, etc.).
These influencers can then give better advice to young people and will be better trained to pass on to them a love of books.
An explosion of themed activities will await your visitors.
This year, the main theme of Salon ÉDUC and even more so of the Children’s Fair will be reading. The subject will be structured in different ways at each level.
Throughout the event, conferences will be held for primary school teachers and French teachers. Meetings with authors, exhibitions, public readings, tributes, presentations of literary prises, conferences, book-related activities, book signings, etc.
