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

Coming soon: 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 only 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.

Take advantage of our ticket shop to secure your ticket right away for Frankfurter Buchmesse 2022. Of course, the safety of all fair participants is of utmost priority again this year. With our flexible hygiene concept, we can quickly implement any measures that might possibly become necessary.

We are greatly looking forward to welcoming you again in October to Frankfurter Buchmesse.
