Booksellers New Zealand fosters a strong, efficient and professional book industry. We represent over 90 percent of New Zealand booksellers.
A key focus of Booksellers New Zealand is book promotion; increasing the sales of books. We also manage New Zealand's book awards. We organise exciting nationwide events, promoting the enjoyment and importance of reading books; and actively develop opportunities for exposing books through television, radio and the print media.
Our diverse membership services range from those assisting with business operating costs, through to those increasing industry knowledge and professionalism.
We offer advice and industry information, generate opportunities for debating industry issues, lobby Government and have a key role in ensuring industry awareness and visibility. We work closely with other arts sector groups and book organisations, the media and sponsors.
