Frankfurter Buchmesse 2021

Re:connect – Welcome back to Frankfurt

26 days to go

20-24 October 2021

Things will kick off this autumn once again – when Frankfurter Buchmesse opens its doors. We look forward to welcoming you, the fair’s exhibitors, as we collaborate once more to create something special. After all, only by working together can we make Frankfurter Buchmesse what it is – even this year. Especially this year. Join us again in 2021, when the world’s largest trade fair for content presents itself to people on every continent. Be there when the book and media industry reconnects in Frankfurt. After all, in-person encounters are what generate unexpected business opportunities, surprising moments and innovative ideas – all of which make Frankfurter Buchmesse the central meeting point for the global publishing community. We’ve developed a unique concept for all participants in this year’s fair  with revised terms, a generous cancellation policy and a flexible programme, making it possible to respond quickly to changing conditions and challenges.

The 73rd Frankfurter Buchmesse is being supported by funds from the German government’s NEUSTART KULTUR programme. This assistance is being passed along to exhibitors, which means they will benefit from significantly lower fees for exhibition stands.

We look forward to seeing you from 20 to 24 October 2021 with Guest of Honour Canada.

See you soon – at Frankfurter Buchmesse 2021

Plan with certainty: thanks to financial support

We believe in flexibility. If the book fair is called off or if, as an exhibitor, you cannot travel to Frankfurt due to the pandemic, no cancellation fees will be charged. This arrangement has been made possible by additional funds from the German government’s NEUSTART KULTUR programme.
