Frankfurt Book Fair

October 08 – 12, 2014, in Frankfurt am Main

The Frankfurt Book Fair continues to be the largest and most important trade show for books worldwide, with participants from over 100 countries. With a history dating back 500 years to the Gutenberg Press, this fair is the world’s most important venue for publishers, agents, booksellers, librarians, translators, authors and suppliers dealing with publishing rights, licenses and international property rights.

Frankfurt Book Fair 2013 attracted over 7,200 exhibitors from 102 countries and over 275,000 visitors. As in previous years, the United States enjoyed high visibility as one of the largest non-German group in attendance.
