Plan your visit to the fair

Book sales at the weekend

For the first time ever, you can also sell your books and publishing products on Saturday at Frankfurter Buchmesse.

A bigger audience for your books

This year, exhibitors can sell their books and publishing products during the entire weekend when the fair opens its doors to the general public. This is a new opportunity for exhibitors to reach more visitors and customers. But it also helps support the book market and sends an important signal to the industry. Because bricks-and-mortar bookstores serve as places of inspiration for passionate readers all year round.

Information for book sales

Books have fixed retail prices. This ensures that you pay the same price everywhere – regardless if you buy it in a small bookshop, a big book store, on the internet or at the Frankfurter Buchmesse.
