About Feria de Editores

In 2013, took place the first Feria de Editores, at the headquarters of a local radio station FM La Tribu. It involved 15 small publishers, with the purpose of showing their books and generating a meeting space between readers and editors. Year after year, the event grew -in number of participants and audience- which showed that there was a cultural need waiting to be addressed.

In 2016 there was an important jump: the fair was held at the Central Newbery art gallery, with more than 400 m2, with some 80 national publishers, plus 7 guests from Uruguay, Chile and Mexico. In 2017, it was consolidated by doubling its space -900 m2-, with the participation of 140 publishers from Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela and Spain.

In 2018 we moved to the Ciudad Cultural Konex, with more than 250 publishers and than 11,000 visitors.
