From October 14-18, 2015 the Frankfurt Book Fair is taking place. It is one of the biggest book events in the world.

The Frankfurt Book Fair is the most important marketplace for books, media, rights and licences worldwide. More than 7,300 exhibitors from 100 countries, 299,000 visitors and over 10,000 journalists. The Frankfurt Book Fair is a meeting place for the industry’s experts. Be they publishers, booksellers, agents, film producers or authors – each year in October, they all come together and create something new. Grow your business, expand your network, build bridges into the future and make new discoveries: digital content, the vibrant publishing landscape of the Guest of Honour and interesting information about the most important markets worldwide. One thing is certain: at the Frankfurt Book Fair you will have more access to current trends than anywhere else.
