Prize for "originality and boldness in these critical times"
Last night, the Mexican publishers' association Cámara Nacional de la Industria Editorial Mexicana (CANIEM) awarded our Metabooks platform together with the online bookstore Cidclic at the CANIEM 2020 Premios in the category "Best Commercial Initiative of the Year".
The aim of the new prize is to provide a high-profile forum for the experts behind the best publishing and commercial projects in the national book industry. Our colleague Adriana Ortega Orozco, who heads the operations department at our Mexican office, accepted the award at the digital premiere ceremony last night.

In the jury's reasoning, the "originality and boldness in these critical times" are highlighted, which "shortens the distance between those who produce the books and those who consume them". "In less than one year, MVB has succeeded with Metabooks in providing the detailed product information of about 36,000 titles from more than 30 publishing houses not only to the largest bookstore chains in the country, but also to many small independent bookstores in different parts of the republic".
We are so happy for the team on site. Hooray for you guys!
