PAHO participated in the International Book Fair (FIL, by its Spanish acronym) in Guadalajara, which took place from November 27 to December 5, 2010. The FIL, the most important editorial meeting in Latin America, is aimed at publishing professionals but the general public is welcome. FIL 2010 will have as guest of honor Castilla y León, Spain, birthplace of Spanish (http://www.fil.com.mx/invitado/castillayleon.asp).
PAHO has participated in the FIL in recent years along with other UN agencies. PAHO’s stand boasts a high number of visits from both professionals and the general public. Participation in the FIL provides PAHO an important opportunity to promote its publications. Among the activities of the stand are the disclosure of information on PAHO programs and the sale of scientific and technical publications. Information on PAHO as an exhibitor and booth location are available in the catalog of the FIL.
