The Hof

The hotel Frankfurter Hof has always served as an unofficial networking hub during the fair. Publishing professionals from all fields and countries meet there in the evenings to wind down from a busy day at the exhibition site. There is a relaxed atmosphere there and always some old acquaintances, as well as new people to meet.

The Hof transports this informal experience to the digital space: with live music and digital breakout sessions that bring you into small groups, and may introduce you to new people by chance. You will also have the opportunity to listen to discussions on different topics, and interact with the respective speakers as well as other publishing professionals.

The climax of The Hof will be during the Buchmesse week, with individual events continuing on through November and December.
