Thanks to additional funding from the German government’s Neustart Kultur program, the Frankfurt Book Fair has sent out communications to all previous exhibitors that there will be no cancellation fees if for some reason the fair must be canceled, or in case exhibitors must cancel their plans to attend at short notice to attend the fair due to circumstances relating to the pandemic. The fair is to take place from 20 to 24 October 2021.

The organizers nevertheless say, “We are confident that Frankfurter Buchmesse will take place this autumn and that together we can achieve a successful relaunch. So please join us! After such a long period without face-to-face meetings, we expect an immense media response. It’s already clear that many participants from the German-speaking world will attend, and we also anticipate a large turnout of international guests, above all from European countries.”

Frankfurt Book Fair registration deadline 31 May 2021

By registering to attend, exhibitors will help the organizers achieve a certain level of commitment and planning security on both sides. Therefore, they have requested that exhibitors submit their registration by the official deadline of 31 May 2021. After that, the planning of the layout of the halls will begin.

Safety and regulations

Frankfurt Book Fair says its top priority is ensuring the safety of visitors to the fair. It is in close contact with the authorities regarding current health regulations. Apart from adhering to all the health and safety requirements in effect in October, it will implement measures that are necessary and appropriate to ensure the well-being of visitors and exhibitors.

Visitors check the website at any time for the latest information.

The organizers add, “For those who are unable to travel or who cannot be present in Frankfurt for other reasons, we are developing digital formats that we will be presenting to you soon.” 

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
