As part of our mission to develop the Philippine book publishing industry, we will be launching various promotional activities. These activities will promote publishers, bookstores, books, both award-winning and new books, and literary and publishing events.

The following are the promotional activities we will be launching and requesting your participation in:
1. Publisher Announcements – An announcement of events, sales or discounts, and new or featured books from publishers will be posted on the NBDB Facebook page and website. (See Attachment A)

Each promotional activity has a corresponding attachment/form to be filled out by interested publishers, bookstores, and/or other stakeholders to be submitted to NBDB. It also includes important guidelines to keep in mind. You can email the filled out forms to marketing@nbdb.gov.ph.

In addition to the promotional activities we have lined up, we will also be creating and uploading a digital Literary and Publishing Calendar on the NBDB website. This will reflect all upcoming events and important dates in the publishing industry including those from publishers, bookstores, and other publishing industry stakeholders.
