The Invitation Programme for Publishers from Countries with developing Book Industries.
The Invitation Programme offers small independent publishing companies from Africa, the Arab world, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean the chance to participate in the world's biggest book fair.
For publishing companies from these regions, globalisation is a two-edged sword. Access to the world market seems easier thanks to all-pervasive communications. At the same time, the advance of new conglomerates makes it harder to break into the market. The main goal of the Frankfurter Buchmesse Invitation Programme is to guarantee the presence of a select group of around 20 publishing houses at the industry's biggest get-together.
The guest publishers attend a two-and-a-half-day seminar before the Book Fair, which provides wide-ranging information on the German book market and international publishing.
The programme begins the week before Frankfurter Buchmesse opens its doors and ends on Sunday.
