It’s still true in 2022: you really need to be there!

From 19 to 23 October 2022, Frankfurter Buchmesse will once again be the focal point for the international publishing industry. Be a part of it all when the key industry players, best-selling authors, and fans of culture from all over the world come together at the exhibition site.

Frankfurter Buchmesse 2022 will be centred around the topic of translation in all its facets: as the way for words to find their way out into the world, as the basis for the trade in literary rights, and for building understanding between cultures amid diversity.

Through personal encounters at the exhibition site, we jointly create new perspectives with you – and for the future of the publishing industry and cultural diversity. We are greatly looking forward to welcoming you again in October to Frankfurter Buchmesse.
