Frankfurt New Generation

Young, active, interested? At Frankfurt New Generation, the topics and media are all about (or by) youths and young adults who want to leave their mark on the world.


When kids grow up... they move on to a new platform: Frankfurt New Generation. It’s a place to discover exciting new technologies, inspiring books, political audio books and the latest apps – have a look, try them out and talk about them, too! All this naturally applies not only to the younger generation, but to the young at heart of all ages.


At Frankfurt New Generation you can:

  • Discover media trends for youths and young adults.
  • Interact directly with BookTubers, influencers and creatives.
  • Form an opinion: get informed on current political topics.
  • Become part of a unique community and let the excitement rub off on you!

Frankfurt Young Stories Award

Our recommendation on the Saturday of the fair: the presentation of the Frankfurt Young Stories Awards. Experience the voices of new German literary talent and meet Bookstagrammers and BookTubers.

Highlighted topics

We draw on current topics concerning culture and society, which are not only of interest to young people. Listen in or join the discussion with other participants when we talk about issues like democracy in crisis, sustainability, the media industry, mental/spiritual health, and bullying.

Create your revolution – Brave voices for a new decade

We’ve created a forum for the younger generation to be heard – well beyond the sphere of Frankfurter Buchmesse. Because culture is the backbone of our society.

Attention, exhibitors!

Take advantage of the possibilities offered by Frankfurter New Generation to call attention to yourself and your offering.

And there is so much more to be discovered
