Translate. Transfer. Transform.

Words connect worlds – at Frankfurter Buchmesse 2022

From 19 - 23 October 2022, Frankfurter Buchmesse will once again open its doors.

When we find new ways to talk to each other, exchange across borders and cultures becomes possible. This is what Frankfurter Buchmesse 2022 (19 – 23 October) will be addressing with its annual motto "Translate. Transfer. Transform." Literary works can be interpreted and adapted: into other languages, different media, new contexts - and thus doors are opened onto fresh perspectives and outlooks. We will meet again in person at Frankfurt, and together we will set new impulses - also for the future of the publishing industry.

Register now: As an exhibitor, agent or scout, you become part of a unique community and present yourself to an international audience of professionals and culture enthusiasts from all over the world.
