BUCH CONTACT is a press agency primarily specialised in public relations. B_CONTACT is the international department of the agency. We provide the “missing link” that will connect you to the market whether you are publishers, authors, cultural institutions, book fairs, museums or exhibition organisers. We can promote any kind of products in the book market from art books, audio books, and ebooks to apps, non-books, etc.
Founded in 1995 in Hamburg, Germany, BUCH CONTACT has evolved from a one-person company to a well-respected agency for public relations with offices in Berlin and Freiburg. The team around the two managing directors Murielle Rousseau and Ulrike Plessow is equipped with knowledge in the fields of arts and books, the publishing industry, public relations and the media industry. Our staff at B_CONTACT speaks German, English, French, Italian and Spanish. Both of our directors are bilingual: Murielle Rousseau is a native speaker of French and German and Ulrike Plessow speaks German and English fluently.
Our speciality: Public relations
We oversee our contacts with the help of our database “Eddy” including more than 40.000 national and international contacts, all categorized. We keep records of every single contact with booksellers, publishers and other promoters.
By having all the relevant contacts, practical knowledge and insider know-how regarding the book and art market, our campaigns for publishers, authors or book fairs are tightly focused on influencing the right people and stimulating the media’s interest.
