Frankfurter Buchmesse is the world’s most important fair for the print and digital content business, as well as an outstanding social and cultural event.

For five days, publishing experts, writers and cultural enthusiasts from all over the world come together at the fair in Frankfurt, where they network, talk, make decisions, get inspired and join together in celebration. Every October, Frankfurt is the centre of the global publishing industry. It’s where ground-breaking contractual agreements are made, innovative technologies are presented, and world literature gets discovered. And during the rest of the year, Frankfurter Buchmesse lives on with appearances at many locations across the globe.
