About BCBF 2025

The next Bologna Children’s Book Fair (BCBF) will take place between the 31st of March and the 3rd of April 2025. The most important event in the calendar of the children’s book publishing world will return to Bologna Fiera, together with BolognaBookPlus (BBPlus) for general trade publishing and Bologna Licensing Trade Fair/Kids (BLTF/K), dedicated to content for children and young adults. Over 1,500 companies and more than 31,000 professional visitors will attend BCBF 2025, after a successful previous edition that once again confirmed the pivotal role of the trade fair within the global publishing industry.

Focused on networking and support for publishers, literary agents, authors, illustrators, and translators, Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2025 will encompass a wide variety of initiatives, activities and exhibitions. The Rights Centre will connect publishers and agents, while the recently launched TV/Film Rights Centre will foster book-to-screen project collaborations. The Illustrators Exhibition will highlight emerging trends in the field and will provide the shortlisted artists with unmatched visibility. The Translators Café @BCBF2025 will feature workshops and panel discussions exploring best practices and challenges such as AI and the related ethical issues. The Guest of Honour Country in 2025 will be Estonia.

Given the popularity of the event in both Italy and abroad, attendees are advised to arrange their stay in Bologna for the BCBF 2025 dates early on. We at ExpoBeds provide accommodation options in top locations - the city centre, the Bologna Fiera area and quiet districts with good transport links to the venue.
