Dear Readers and Friends,
We are  writing to inform you that the German  Book Office, New Delhi will be closing its doors for the time being, after having served the Indian and South Asian publishing community for 12 years. This step has become necessary as a result of the pandemic’s impact on the business of the Frankfurter Buchmesse this year and is part of the ongoing restructuring process at the Buchmesse.
All book fair related customer service that has been provided by the New Delhi office will now be taken over by the experienced team in Frankfurt as of March 1, 2021. The colleagues in Frankfurt will be in touch with customers soon with the new contact person. Meanwhile, Ms. Claudia Kaiser will continue to oversee the business in the South Asian region, and as always, will be reachable at Kaiser@buchmesse.de
Angela Albert and Surti Bangia will be overseeing the closing of the New Delhi office and then focus on their next chapter. We cannot thank them enough for their engaged and hard work in the past years. If there are any pending matters that you would like us to assist you with or if there are any comments or feedback, please feel free to write to us.
We would like to thank all our customers, partners and friends in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Germany, Russia, China, New York and worldwide for working with us and trusting us with their business over the years. Together with you, we have created new formats like Jumpstart, GlobaLocal and, of course, lately, the podcasts. We appreciate your support for these endeavours and will incorporate our learnings in our future event formats.
All of us at German Book Office New Delhi  have much  enjoyed working with you over the years. Thank you so much for your support, understanding and friendship. We are  confident that the team in Frankfurt will look after you very well and ensure a seamless transition for the moment. We of course hope that we will be able to be present again in South Asia soon. 
Juergen Boos
