Dear colleagues, dear friends,

When the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of Hungary was admitted to be a member of ILAB in Bologna in 2010, I promised that the Hungarian association would actively contribute to the endeavours of the League. I considered this important because it slowly became clear to me that we had an important part to play in saving and reviving our often „endangered”’ profession. The Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of Hungary has therefore offered to organise a congress and fair in Budapest.

It is a crucial step for us, since this way we will be able to introduce our rich culture and fine experts to you and make Hungary attractive from a professional perspective. By making you familiar with the country, you will also learn more about who to address, if you encounter a rarity from our cultural heritage.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Budapest!
