One fair for everyone:
dynamic, international, relevant

For years, the international publishing industry has been becoming more interdependent. In 2015, for the first time, the Frankfurt Book Fair will reflect this development with a new fair concept – and with a new hall layout. Thanks to this reorganization, the Frankfurt Book Fair is busier than ever:

  • Political book fair: The new location of the “Weltempfang” (Centre for Politics, Literature and Translation) in Hall 3.1 puts it even more firmly in the spotlight
  • English-language exhibitors are now located at the heart of the fair’s activities
  • The Agora’s central position at the fair has been strengthened through many events and special event formats
  • The halls have been divided up even more clearly according to themes and linguistic and cultural areas
  • The new location of the Literary Agents & Scouts Centre (LitAg) aims to result in even more deals than in previous years
  • The greater inclusion of start-ups and tertiary-sector industries is encouraging more innovative business models
