Welcome to Children's and Young Adults' Media

The KIDS area is colourful, exciting and a "must" for anyone involved or interested in the children’s book community. Seminars and networking events during the entire Fair give insight into the "future of reading", what children’s book markets in other countries are doing, and much more. Meet children’s book publishers, agents, digital service providers, illustrators, authors, and others.

  • Hall 3.0

    Hall 3.0 is the centre of the KIDS universe: Here, you’ll find the displays of renowned German-language publishers such as Oetinger, Loewe, Beltz and many others, as well as large and small exhibitors from Russia, Spain, Italy, Asia and many other countries. From Wednesday to Friday, on the Kids' stage, there will be professional events on various topics, and on the weekend well-known authors will give public readings.

  • Children’s book publishers around the Agora

    You’ll find children’s book publishers exhibiting within their national contexts not only in Hall 3.0, but in other halls as well. Since 2015, all publishers are grouped around the Agora, so long walks to the English-language children’s book publishers, for example, are no longer necessary – you’ll find them in Hall 6.1.

  • Illustrators

    The Illustrators’ Corner, in the immediate vicinity of the Children’s Book Centre, is a contact point for illustrators and publishers. Portfolio advice from experts, rights advice for illustrators, glimpses into German and international portfolios – here, you’ll find the right contact person for all these things every day.

  • Inside and outside Hall 3.0 –
    our tours give you the lie of the land

    Through various tours, we help you to understand the children’s and young adult community at the Frankfurt Book Fair. Group size is limited, so please register as soon as possible to ensure your participation. Starting summer 2016 you can get further information on the tours here.
