Pablo Braun, Mónica Díaz and Emilia Franco de Arcila in conversation with José Manuel Anta

Book distribution, a risky and constantly evolving profession

Cartagena 2022, 

The increase in online sales, the speed of commercial transactions thanks to the demand of consumers, printing on demand, the role of bookstores, the emergence of new points of sale, the mergers in the industry, the gradual disappearance of the exclusivity of publishers... Distribution companies in Latin America and Spain are facing far-reaching changes, both technologically and conceptually. With Pablo Braun (Argentina), from the distributor Big Sur (Argentina and Chile) and Escaramuza (Uruguay); Mónica Díaz (Spain), manager of UDL Libros; and Emilia Franco de Arcila (Colombia), from Siglo del Hombre Editores. In conversation with José Manuel Anta.
