CCBF 2018 in quotes

Barry Cunningham OBE, Chicken House
I not only learnt a great deal about the changing Chinese market - but also gained some understanding of how we might play a part, together with a wonderful and completely new understanding of how China works at work and at play!

Andrea MacDonald, Penguin Randomhouse
The SHVIP programme was an incredible experience - an in-depth and brilliantly-executed way to learn about the Chinese market, and to connect with new publishing contacts around the globe. It was both hugely enjoyable and informative. I want to say thank you to all the organisers, publishers and helpers who welcomed us so warmly and openly, and for making our time so special and stimulating.

Teresa Tellechea, Grupo SM
This Fellowship has given me a chance to discover the children's books industry in China and meet a lot of Chinese publishing professionals. I think it would have taken years to get all the information I got from them in just a few days and I am sure that I will start to do business with Chinese publishing houses in the near future. It has also been great to share my time with such a good group of professionals and companions from different backgrounds. I am sure we'll keep in touch for the years to come: “Once a Fellow always a Fellow!”

Erik Titusson, Lilla Piratförlaget
I didn't realize how much I needed to come to China before I went. I learned so much! Thank you!
