About New York Rights Fair
The New York Rights Fair (NYRF) is a copyright trade and licensing show dedicated to publishing, selling and buying international rights and licensing. The second edition brought U.S. publishers and agents together with their global counterparts, embracing both adult and children's content.
The second fair took place May 29-31, 2019 on the BookExpo show floor at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. This colocation made the two fairs the biggest and most important U.S. publishing event of the year.
