In October 2023, the international THE HOF community met for the first time live at the fairgrounds. Together with Publishers without Borders (PwB) we ended the first day of the fair on a relaxed note with live music from The Hof.
In the spirit of a year-round event, the next The Hof sessions are already around the corner. The first 2024 session will take place on 29 February 2024. Join us and discuss AI in publishing with the international publishing community!
At The Hof, publishing professionals, authors and literature enthusiasts from different fields and nations have been meeting since 2020 to experience exclusive interview guests live, discuss exciting topics and meet old friends and make new contacts in a relaxed atmosphere with live music.
