DEAR READER
GREETINGS FROM THE GERMAN BOOK OFFICE NEW DELHI
 

 

FRANKFURTER BUCHMESSE 2020
ALL TOGETHER NOW – ON AIR. AT THE FAIR.
 

Under the motto "All together now", Frankfurter Buchmesse invites the international publishing industry to celebrate literature, authors and their stories together in this turbulent year. In this newsletter, we present the digital fair concept and some opportunities for participation. For example, publishers and partners can use their events to give the BOOKFEST a digital dimension. In the Facebook group "Pitch your CIP", creative professionals, publishers and agencies come together to trade Creative Intellectual Property (CIP). In addition, the Guest of Honour Canada presents its authors with a strong digital presence this year.

Looking forward to your participation!

INTERNATIONAL LITERATURE FESTIVAL
BOOKFEST DIGITAL CELEBRATES THE “LITERATURHERBST” 2020
 

In 2020, Frankfurter Buchmesse BOOKFEST will once again focus on authors, books and topics as well as on the industry as a whole: On the Saturday of the fair, 17 October 2020, BOOKFEST digital festival will present exclusive virtual encounters, exciting interviews, relevant discussions, interesting productions, international entertainment and much more. All international publishers and partners are invited to submit their event ideas - until 31 July 2020.

BOOST YOUR CREATIVE CONTENT - THE ARTS+
NEW OPPORTUNITIES - CREATIVE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
 

In the search for new content and partnerships, THE ARTS+ focuses on the trade in creative intellectual property. Whether film/TV, music or games - THE ARTS+ brings together publishing and content professionals. For example, in the closed Facebook group "Pitch your CIP", where companies like Unger & Fiedler have already presented exciting pitches.
Become a part of the community!

Canada’s presentation as Guest of Honour at Frankfurter Buchmesse (14–18 October 2020) has been postponed until 2021 due to Covid-19.
