Rights & Licensing

The number one marketplace for international rights and licensing.

Frankfurter Buchmesse: international networking, personal contacts and an excellent place to do business. If there is one place where the global rights and licensing trade for all kinds of creative intellectual property is at home, it’s here. Nowhere else can you find more literary agents and rights managers from all over the world than at the annual must-attend event in Frankfurt. This year, the wide range of opportunities at the fair will be expanded to include many new digital formats for the rights and licensing segment.

Whether live on-site or digitally across the globe: Frankfurter Buchmesse is the world's most important marketplace for print and digital content.
