Walkable Catalogue - a free promotion tool for our kids’/YA exhibitors:

One feature of the collective stand Frankfurt Kids 4.1 is the "Walkable Catalogue" - a book exhibition space open to all exhibitors with a kids' or YA programme.

It works like this:

On the Tuesday before the Fair, pick two titles from your children's / YA list, and take one copy each to the information desk within Frankfurt Kids 4.1; between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. our colleagues there will then mark these books with your hall and stand number and add them to the Walkable Catalogue shelves, so visitors can "discover" them and your company.

All titles presented are intended as donations for libraries in Germany after the fair.

Collective stand children's and young adult media:

In addition to the primarily German-language "Children's Book Hall" 3.0, we have created a successful international satellite over the past few years. In 2020 the satellite in Hall 4.1 will feature the collective stand, the Walkable Catalogue and the Frankfurt Kids 4.1 stage. Book your presence at the collective stand and profit from the international network Frankfurt provides.
