Frankfurt Book Fair 2018 — A preview for the tech savvy

Next week marks the most important time of the year in the publishing calendar, as the Frankfurt Book Fair gets into gear and hundreds of thousands of book industry professionals prepare to swamp Germany’s business hub.

But the world’s biggest publishing gathering can be a daunting place for many, with packed halls, bustling aisles and hundreds of events, seminars and important discussions taking place at the same time.

For those interested in technology and innovation in publishing, this year’s speaking programme at the Buchmesse doesn’t disappoint, and is perhaps the most cutting edge we’ve ever seen. Delegates will be spoilt for choice when it comes to attending events on the technologies which will have a big impact on the industry’s future in the short, mid and long term.

To this end, we’ve distilled some of the most interesting Buchmesse events into a useful preview to help you decide which seminars, talks and presentations you attend between meetings, hotdog lunches and, the now infamous, Buchmesse ice creams.

Buchmesse eve has become a key date for many delegates over the years with several important pre-fair conference taking place in and around the sprawling halls and many encouraged to book early flights and lengthen their stay to attend.
