LAS VEGAS, Jan. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — LMBPN®, LLC, a global leader in digital book publishing, announces that it has established a separate company in the Sharjah Publishing City Free Zone (SPCFZ) located in the Emirate of Sharjah, UAE. The new company will be called LMBPN® International FZC, and it will focus on publishing original and existing content in languages other than English. The establishment of this company marks a major expansion for LMBPN as the corporation continues on its path to reach readers around the world in their native languages.
"As an author, presenting at the recent Sharjah International Book Fair allowed me the opportunity to experience firsthand the extensive emphasis Sharjah and the rest of the Emirates place on promoting authors and stories from around the world. As a publisher, I was extremely impressed by the SPCFZ leadership’s development of forward-thinking strategies and the effective execution of those strategies, making the SPCFZ the best option as a gateway into the Arab and African publishing business and eventually, the world," said Michael Anderle, CEO of LMBPN Publishing. "In recent years, some of the largest publishing companies have established a presence in Sharjah. I believe it makes sense that as a leader in the indie community, our company needs to have a presence in Sharjah as well."
"Sharjah Publishing City Free Zone is the first of its kind in the world," said Ahmed Al Ameri, Chairman, Sharjah Book Authority. "Our aim is to provide significant opportunities in every aspect of the publishing business to publishers who wish to expand their global access and outreach into some of the fastest-growing regional markets in the world. We are glad Michael has seized this opportunity and recognizes the value of establishing a corporate presence in the SPCFZ."
