Frankfurt Book Fair
18 October 2021

In the book industry – that is, the business side of publishing – Frankfurt is the big one. A lot of the book fair is dedicated to rights and licenses and the global book supply chain. This year’s Frankfurt Book Fair takes place between 22 and 24 October.

Apart from all the trade networking and connections and the usual exhibitors, there are a few events designed to draw in the private visitors as well.

The ARTS+ is an exchange that brings together business and creatives for the exchange and sale of Creative Intellectual Property.

All very good, and all very exciting.

I won’t be attending this year, as I’m literally evented-out and don’t feel like travelling outside of the UK for the rest of the year, at least. But it is a tremendously useful and high octane event for those in the publishing industry.

Peter van der Walt is a fiction author, although you may find some non-fiction and the odd essay out there. Fans can find his newsletter, posts, updates and developments at Currently, he is hard at work on his next story. When not writing, he has far too many interests to reasonably keep up with. He lives with his partner in Devon, England.
