About van Ditmar

Van Ditmar Boekenimport

Van Ditmar organises the Amsterdam Book Event. In our centenary year, we have grown to become the full-service trading partner of the Dutch book trade. We help publishers and booksellers sell, distribute and promote International books. In doing so, we offer the most suitable offer to our clients so that they can reach their own customer, the consumer, in the best possible way.


From a selection of millions of titles and a warehouse of more than 50,000 m2 we deliver our books to many different types of customers every day. Unburdening is our keyword. From bookshops to museums and from web shops to department stores; we take stock of the wishes that suit your company and then determine the optimum range together. Always personal and always with attention.

Van Ditmar is a reliable full-service partner for retailers and publishers in the book sector. We would be happy to discuss what we can do for your company. Our office sales team is at your service on weekdays by phone or e-mail from 09.00 - 17.00.


Van Ditmar delivers bestseller ranges within 24 hours directly from its own stock and 2 million titles from three foreign wholesalers (Gardners, Libri and Ingram) to order. To offer the best selection in each category, our team of product managers and buyers make monthly selections from hundreds of new titles.
