About Bologna Children's Book Fair 2022

Bologna Children’s Book Fair is the premier annual meeting for the international children’s literature publishing and content industry. After two online editions hosted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, BCBF 2022 will return to an in-person format in its 59th year. As usual, Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2022 will be hosted at Bologna Fiere with the dates for the event being set as 21 – 24 March 2022.

BCBF attracts with its versatility and the impetus for knowledge and novelty it creates. Over 1,500 exhibitors contribute to the outstanding variety of content and diverse cultural atmosphere at the fair. A recent addition is the Comics and Graphic Novels area, reflecting the interest in this fastest growing publishing sector. Participants in the show can meet with over 30,000 international publishers, authors and illustrators, booksellers, librarians and other professionals involved in the book, multimedia and licensing business for children’s content. From meetings with renowned veterans and creative newcomers on the publishing scene to an overview of marketing strategies and content trends, attending the Bologna Children’s Book Fair offers unlimited business opportunities.

With hundreds of events, the supporting programme at BCBF further drives business opportunity and the sector’s future.

Thanks so much for following up! We were very happy with the customer service we received from you (Thank you so much for always providing quick follow-up and for recommending the Nikko!), the ease of booking (particularly during a pandemic), and the wonderful communication through-out the year. We are definitely interested in using you for securing accommodations for next year’s MEDICA.

In regards to the Nikko Dusseldorf, it is now number one on our list due to quality, proximately to rail, pricing, etc

I found Expobeds service easy to use and helpful, and I appreciated the personal touch of being contacted directly with reminders of deadlines and the like. I don't have any criticism to offer. I stayed at the Maritim Hotel Frankfurt. It was appropriate - it's proximity to the Messe Grounds was very valuable, and the room I booked met my needs. It's a tiny bit far away from other interesting things to do in Frankfurt, but that's an adequate trade off for its proximity to the Messe.
