The Conferences of Frankfurter Buchmesse. Globally inspiring.

The globalisation of the publishing industry continues to accelerate and thus remains a central theme of Frankfurter Buchmesse, which has always been a synonym for international networking.

To strengthen and support these activities throughout the year, we organise numerous international conferences and events.
With an international network and a team of regional publishing and media professionals, we are present for you in all relevant media markets.

This gives you first-hand insights into the latest trends, visionary business models and down-to-earth, practical market analyses.
