The Frankfurt Book Fair is the largest in the world, receiving visitors and book dealers from more than 100 countries. Largely focused around trade, distribution and selling, it carries a heritage of some 500 years under its belt. Fittingly, Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press just outside Frankfurt in the town of Mainz, and the first fair was held by local publishers shortly afterwards. The festivities include many lectures, workshops and conferences, as well as book signings and discussions. This is a great event for industry professionals but also for fans who come to meet their favourite authors and enjoy the colourful literary atmosphere.

Venue: Frankfurt am Main

Date: TBC 2021
