SAGE participated in this year’s 101st Deutscher Bibliothekartag 2012 during the week of 21st May at the Congress Centrum Hamburg (CCH). The key annual event for German librarians has a busy lecture programme and an exhibition with several UK-based publishers participating as well as all the key German library supply businesses, several of whom are among SAGE’s most important trade customers in Europe.
Massmann Internationale Buchhandlung, which is based in Hamburg, hosted SAGE in a dedicated area of their stand and on Tuesday night invited all delegates to a reception which SAGE sponsored. On Wednesday night Martin Vicars and Jenny Hopkins joined 30 librarians and our hosts Kay and Dorothea Massman at a special Conference dinner on the River Elbe. Gavin Lythe and Marcin Kwiatkowski also attended the Bibliothekartag and based on the success of the Hamburg meeting we are already thinking about returning for 2013!
