Frankfurt Book Fair is the world’s largest book fair by far and attracts more than 7,300 publishing houses from more than 100 different countries and around 300,000 visitors. This is the meeting place for the decision-makers from the book trade: publishers, agents, authors and film producers. This is the place where books, media, rights and licences are all negotiated. The book trade’s most important event also attracts more than 10,000 journalists every year.

The Antiquarian Book Fair has been an established and impressive part of Frankfurt Book Fair since 2005 and benefits from a probably unique interest of visitors and media representatives worldwide. Visitors to the Antiquarian Book Fair will again be classified as “trade visitors” and can gain entry to the fair every day.

After many changes of venue over the last few years, the Antiquarian Book Fair has now acquired a permanent base in Hall 6.0. Direct links to French and Asian publishers in Hall 6.1 and the proximity to the international Hall 5 have helped to emphasise the international calibre of the Antiquarian Book Fair. Publishers from all over the world are now among our regular customers and give exhibitors the opportunity to establish international business contacts like no other fair.
