Ballon Media will distribute Clavis titles

From 1 January 2011, Ballon Media Sales will distribute the children’s books by Clavis Publishers for the channels outside the traditional book trade in Flanders and the Netherlands.

The deal concerns high-level distribution, wholesalers and toy chains in both Flanders and the Netherlands. Both companies are pleased with the new collaboration as it offers opportunities for the future. For example, joining forces assures that a broad and quality offering of children’s books will find its way to the customer via all sales channels.

Clavis Publishers
Clavis Publishers is one of the largest independent publishers of children’s and youth books within the Dutch-language region, with branches in Hasselt, Amsterdam and New York. Clavis represents leading authors, such as Guido van Genechten, Gerard van Gemert, Anthony Horowitz and Liesbet Slegers. It has a strong international appeal, partly due to developing international partnerships. “Today, children from Italy to Japan can dream off with titles, like Rikki and Kaatje,” says Commercial Director Anthony Vavrinek.

Ballon Media
Ballon Media consists of the book distributor Ballon Media Sales, children’s book publisher Ballon Kids and comics publisher Ballon Comics. Ballon Media Sales distributes the company’s own publications. In addition, it also acts as the exclusive distributor for Flanders and the Netherlands for a selection of renowned publishers. Since 1 January 2011, the company has a combined offering of children’s books from the Clavis catalogue, children’s books by Casterman and the own Ballon Kids publications. “The children’s book catalogues that we distribute are highly complementary and therefore offer a shared opportunity for all represented publishers,” says Alexis Dragonetti, Managing Director of Ballon Media.
