Call to a new Frankfurt Book Fair – your global city of ideas
From new titles to new technology and data to deals, the Frankfurt Book Fair opens up a world of opportunities for all those interested in shaping the future of the books and media industries. As the international publishing business is changing rapidly, the Frankfurt Book Fair is introducing some major changes. Here’s more on the new Frankfurt Book Fair. At the Frankfurt Book Fair 2015 (October 14-18, 2015), the plan is to launch a new hall layout that takes into account the increasing transformation of the international book markets. Frankfurt Book Fair’s goal in doing so is to help its customers generate more business and ensure more efficiency all around. Using the methods of modern urban development, and after much in-depth deliberations with customers, the book fair has come up with an infrastructure programme that allows exhibitors and visitors more attractive facilities, optimised traffic flow, and new opportunities to interact with fellow fairgoers. With new hall configuration, the Book Fair will be structured more according to individual themes and market segments. At the same time, for exhibitors, the proximity to other areas will improve as relevant business contacts will only be a few-minutes’ walk away.
