Frankfurt Book Fair 2022

Untitled (250 × 500px) (7)

The book industry milestone event, Frankfurt Book Fair, brings together thousands of book sector professionals for business, networking, and market insights opportunities every year.

The RISE Bookselling programme is offering booksellers, who stock foreign-language titles in their bookshops and are interested in learning more about the German book market and publishing industry, an opportunity to experience this great event firsthand.

Taking place between 19 and 23 October 2022, under the motto ‘Translate. Transfer. Transform’, and with Spain as guest of honour, the 74th Frankfurter Buchmesse focuses on international dialogue and how the latter can bring about exchanges across borders and cultures. The participants can expect to gain concrete insights into the German book market through thematic seminars on topics such as the German publishing landscape or distribution and bookselling system. We will also provide booksellers with ample networking opportunities, enabling them to exchange views and ideas with their fellow participants, as well as with participants of the Frankfurt Book Fair's other initiatives.

All activities within the programme will be held in English.


When and where will the event take place?

Between 17 and 21 October 2022, during the Frankfurt Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany.
