Be there when Frankfurter Buchmesse opens its doors again in October and take advantage of the opportunity to finally experience the world's biggest content fair on site. You will find international stars, renowned bestselling authors along with up-and-coming artists, and be inspired by our numerous programme highlights: at talks about hot topics on the big ARD Book Fair Stage, for example, the Blue Sofa or at selected BOOKFEST city locations.
In addition to the events at the physical fair, you can also benefit from our extensive digital programme – even before it opens. Starting as early as September, you can take part in the virtual events of The Hof and network with the industry while listening to live music, or expand your knowledge at the new FBM Masterclasses.
Re:connect. We look forward to seeing you – digitally and on-site.
