Frankfurt Book Fair 2023 will welcome countless participants worldwide for another exciting live gathering. The most significant international book trade fair will open doors for publishers and book retailers at Messe Frankfurt from 18 to 22 October 2023. The book publishing expo will be in a hybrid format, allowing participants from different parts of the world to connect and enjoy a unique exhibition experience.

Frankfurt Book Fair 2023 will offer various exhibition activities for everyone involved. The trade show will turn into a meeting spot for publishing experts and partners from the technology and creative industries such as film and games to exchange ideas, seek inspiration, discover new practices and technologies, and cultivate contacts. Pavilions with the latest products and licensing services, book reviews and premieres, informative seminars and other exciting activities, including THE ART+ marketplace, will fill the halls of the Frankfurt Book Fair 2023 venue.

The Guest of Honour programme always offers an exciting new input, and the upcoming edition will be no exception.
