Picture of the International Stage: The speakers on stage and the audience in the public of the live The Hof Event raise their glasses.

Two The Hof highlights await you in May! The next digital session will take place on 16 May 2024. Discuss new ways of working and the consequences of a generational shift in publishing with our international interview guests and meet publishing peers from all over the world.

On 14 May 2024, the second in-person event of The Hof Community took place in New York. Our guests enjoyed live music by Eleanor Dubinsky and Dario Acosta Teich, listened to interesting interviews with host Felix Zeltner and had inspiring conversations with the local publishing community!

Make a note now: After a short summer break, further The Hof sessions will take place from August to November 2024, including Frankfurter Buchmesse's future Guest of Honour, the Philippines, and Markus Dohle, with whom we will discuss the opportunities and challenges of AI in publishing. Save the date now!

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.
