Frankfurt Book Fair
The Frankfurt Book Fair (a.k.a. Frankfurter Buchmesse or FBM) is the most important event for the books, media, related rights and licenses sectors in the world. It takes place every October in Messe Frankfurt. Notable representatives, publishers, booksellers, film producers and authors attend the FBM show each year. The previous edition of the Buchmesse in Frankfurt received over 7300 exhibitors from 102 countries, close to 10,000 journalists and 286,500 visitors.
Digital media is among the key topics throughout the fair. Its possibilities and challenges are discussed in detail. The fair also includes a feature called “The Business Club”. Here attendees get the chance to experience the entire event in a new light. This includes meeting the top experts and public speakers in the industry. Frankfurt Book Fair is a great place to expand your business network and grow your professional skills. Frankfurt Book Fair 2018 is set to present over 4000 activities enabling you to do this.
In 2017, the guest of honor at FBM was France. The motto Frankfurt in French reflected the spirit of the event, the cultural exchanges as well as the projects and initiatives performed in cooperation by German and French companies. Innovation and hospitality will remain among the main themes of the accompanying programme in 2018. The media attention directed towards the expo will present extra opportunities for professionals involved in that sphere to get under the spotlight at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2018.
