See you In Frankfurt!

270,000 and 7,100 – Can you guess what these two numbers have in common?

Both are figures that demonstrate how Frankfurt Book Fair is the place to be for anyone in publishing. With over 270,000 people and more than 7,100 exhibitors, it’s the largest congregation of publishers worldwide, where professionals from all parts of the industry gather to meet, discuss, innovate, and discover more about what’s happening in publishing.

We’ve been attending for over 25 years, with each year bringing new insights and experience.  And if you’ve ever had the privilege and pleasure of attending the Frankfurt Book Fair, you know how much of a whirlwind adventure it is – and how quickly your schedule gets packed.

This year, you can visit us at our booth K.47 in Hall 4.2, and you can also catch us at two Hot Spot sessions. Given last year’s great response to the Hot Spot sessions, you’ll want to be sure to check them out (details below). You can pre-register to attend here.
