Kuala Lumpur Trade and Copyright Centre (KLTCC) 2017
In addition to becoming a hub for the book industry, Kota Buku will be organising the Kuala Lumpur Trade and Copyright Centre (KLTCC) for the year 2017, where the main aim is for Malaysia to become a content hub for Asia Pacific. Since 2008, KLTCC started as an incubator which later expanded and succeeded in gaining participation from partners all over South East Asia and the international players, where both buyers and sellers obtained great success in the copyright trade.
In line with Kota Buku’s goals, KLTCC is an excellent platform which helps the digital and ‘future book’ trade to thrive. Kota Buku is uniquely positioned to serve as a platform that promotes the copyright trade on such a scale in comparison to international book fairs in the world over. Malaysia’s strategic location between the Eastern and Western trade routes and the multi-ethnicity of its social fabric, acts as a leverage that encourages diversity in the consumption and demand of contents. This opens a huge market potential for book industry players to meet, gather and trade.
KLTCC attracts not only participation from publishers, but also expands the pool across to content creators, technopreneurs, illustrators, higher education institutes, the media and animators where they can engage with experts in the trade of conventional and digital copyrights, licences and contents on a global scale, thus acting as a gateway for international players into Asia Pacific. KLTCC is expected to attract participation from ASEAN countries as well as China, India, Korea and Japan.
