It's all Academic

Hall 4.2 at Frankfurter Buchmesse hosts the biggest international fair for Academic Publishing and Business Information.

Publishers, service providers, librarians, and other visitors interested in these fields will find some new additions to the usual hive of activity in Hall 4.2 around the Academic and Business Information Stage.

On Wednesday, join the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) and The Scholarly Kitchen (TSK) Chefs for a complimentary breakfast with a side of what’s trending in scholarly and academic publishing.

Librarians can discover new solutions from both new and established technology companies at the International Library Center (ILC) in the same hall.

On Saturday, the 6th edition of the International Convention of University Presses is the perfect networking event for Academic publishers, focusing on the topic of digital developments and how they are transforming – or disrupting – the academic publishing industry.

On the weekend, the ILC area will be transformed into an interactive LAB, where visitors can experience the future of libraries and learning concepts.

On the Academic and Business Information Stage, as well as at participating stands, the ‘Campus Weekend’ will offer a wide variety of events aimed at students.
