Frankfurt Book Fair
The Frankfurt Book Fair is the international publishing industry’s biggest trade fair – with 7,300 exhibitors from more than 100 countries, around 275,000 visitors, over 3,700 events and around 9,000 accredited journalists in attendance. It also gathers key players from other media, including the film and games industries.
Since 1976, the Book Fair has featured an annual Guest of Honour country, which showcases its book market, literature and culture to attendees in a variety of ways. The Frankfurt Book Fair organises the participation of German publishers at around 20 international book fairs and hosts trade events throughout the year in major international markets. With the establishment of the Frankfurt Book Fair Business Club, the Frankfurt Book Fair now offers entrepreneurs, publishers, company founders, pioneers, experts and visionaries the ideal setting for conducting business. The CONTEC and STORYDRIVE conferences have both become established meeting places for the industry. The Frankfurt Book Fair is a subsidiary of the German Publishers & Booksellers Association. www.book-fair.com
