THE ARTS+ Programme 2020

The complete programme: Creative Intellectual Property at the heart of the cultural economy

THE ARTS+ auf Frankfurter Buchmesse

Publishing meets Creativity

A diverse programme awaited you at THE ARTS+ which addressed the many facets of Creative Intellectual Property and drove the dialogue between publishing and content experts. Gather inspiration from showcases, pitches, and master classes; gain new perspectives from other sectors; and exchange experiences with other professionals at the matchmaking and networking events.

Every event day focused on a different topic. On Wednesday, it was all about the potential of innovative AR/VR/XR technologies for the content industry. Thursday was devoted to the development of cross-media and cross-sector licensing and merchandising strategies. Finally, on Friday, the focus lay on film and the many possibilities it offers in the expression and adaptation of content.
