Frankfurt Book Fair introduces Business Club
An exclusive setting, a high-quality programme and excellent networking opportunities: the Frankfurt Book Fair (October 8-12, 2014) will launch the Frankfurt Book Fair Business Club. The aim of this new addition is to offer entrepreneurs, founders, publishers, pioneers, experts and visionaries a perfect setting for conducting business at the Frankfurt Book Fair, while also providing unlimited access to events throughout the Fair.
“In conversations with our customers all over the world, we’ve always asked them what they expect from us as a Book Fair and how we can offer them more support for the work they do. The responses have been surprisingly unanimous: more effective networking with new business partners, more inspiration, and more practical tips for doing business and more discussions about new business models. The launch of the Business Club is our response to these needs”, said Juergen Boos, director of the Frankfurt Book Fair. “Our club will be the place at the Book Fair where new business is generated and lasting contacts are made,” he added.
The Business Club, located in Hall 4.0 on the exhibition grounds, shall offers a full range of amenities and services. Members can take advantage of the warm ambience of the club for their meetings and negotiations. They are also free to choose from a variety of events and networking opportunities depending on their own needs and interests. “Each morning will kick off with a business breakfast, which will then be followed by top-class presentations, workshops and master classes. We’ll also offer one-on-one meetings with consultants, guided tours of the Book Fair focused on specific themes, as well as speed dating services,” said Britta Friedrich, head of events and programmes for the Frankfurt Book Fair.
