33rd Frankfurt Rights Meeting – October 2019

Discussing trends in licensing and rights


The Frankfurt Rights Meeting has been the meeting place for all decision-makers in the field of rights and licenses for over 30 years. The speakers offer an exclusive insight into current topics and trends to over 200 participants. The meeting offers a place for rights and license managers, literary agents, scouts and publishers to meet for lectures, discussions and networking. The 33rd Frankfurt Rights Meeting will take place between 16 and 20 October 2019, at the German Book Office in Delhi.

The Frankfurt Rights Meeting is a hallmark conference for the international rights and licensing business. This year’s edition focuses on ‘expanding, emerging, evolving’ markets and technologies. Among others, it will look at the Chinese and the Czech rights markets and explore digital innovations in the field.

The event will include expert talks, panel discussions and networking sessions. Visitors will get insights into today’s dynamic business and connect to international visitors and speakers from the industry.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
