Working Centre with access exclusively for Agents and Scouts. Information on registration and fees below. The Literary Agents and Scouts Centre is the largest rights and licensing centre in the world. It is located in Hall 6.3, at the heart of the Frankfurt Book Fair. Starting even before the fair on the Tuesday, talks and rights negotiations take place at more than 400 tables screened off from the general hurly-burly of the fair. During the Book Fair, everyone who’s anyone in the international agency scene makes use of the ideal working conditions and the inspiring atmosphere of the LitAg.

The admission to the LitAg is confined to registered agents and scouts as well as their businesspartners. Authors may enter solely with explicit invitation and a scheduled appointment.

  • Frankfurt’s Literary Agents & Scouts Centre (LitAg), the largest international rights center exclusively for agents and scouts, was attended by a record number of agents at the 2015 Book Fair. Traditionally, more than 300 agencies with more than 600 registered agents from over 30 countries are represented in the LitAg each year.

  • Proximity to the rest of the world: The LitAg is located under the same roof as the English language publishers in Hall 6.3. In order to guarantee the best possible working conditions for registered agents, access to the LitAg will be regulated by our friendly staff members, thus assuring the best possible Fair experience for all.

  • Our Service: Our reservation at the LitAg includes a table and four chairs specially reserved for your agency, a company sign with your logo, a lockable bench, a power outlet, a mailbox, and a coat hook. In addition, the side wall provides ample space for rentable shelves. The LitAg opens one day before the official start of the Fair – on Tuesday – and offers, until Sunday evening, the following services to registered agents: free Wi-Fi, access to computer and printer, a messaging service, and a cafeteria.

  • Marketing fee: Please note that since 2014 the cataloguing fee has been replaced by the marketing fee. The marketing fee includes your obligatory catalogue entry and many other products and services of the Frankfurt Book Fair: the Book Fair App, international market studies, the Young Excellence Award, participation in the Bookseller’s Rising Star initiative and in PW’s Starwatch programme
