A dash of Spain at Frankfurt Book Fair – 19 – 23 October

Spain is Guest of Honor at the event

Spain's literary voices include Kiko Amat, Cristina Morales, Elizabeth Duval, Rosa Montero, Sara Mesa, and Fernando Aramburu

It is a Spanish treat all the way at this year’s Frankfurt Buchmesse or the Frankfurt Book Fair as it is popularly called. The world’s largest trade fair for books, based on the number of publishing companies represented, the event is taking place from 19 – 23 October 2022.

The who’s who of Spanish literature in Frankfurt

Spain, Frankfurter Buchmesse’s Guest of Honor, is traveling to Frankfurt with a 200-strong delegation of writers and creative people. Among them are Spain’s most exciting literary voices, including Kiko Amat, Cristina Morales, Elizabeth Duval, Rosa Montero, Sara Mesa, and Fernando Aramburu.

The delegation is characterized by strong female voices. A new generation of international authors includes Paloma Chen, Nadia Hafid, and Margaryta Yakovenko. Ada Salas, Ángela Segovia, and Raquel Lanseros, who represent a new form of Spanish poetry, and María Hesse, Núria Tamarit, and Elisa McCausland, who represent the comic genre.

A space designed for stories

The Guest of Honour Pavilion, the heart of the Spanish program at Frankfurter Buchmesse, was designed by the architecture and design studio ENORME from Madrid together with the design team Vitamin. Visitors to the fair can become part of Spanish literature and culture for five days.

The walls in the pavilion fill up like the pages of an oversized book with the words and text fragments that can be heard here during the event, and those words transform into colorful worlds.

The Frankfurter Buchmesse app lists all Spanish exhibitors that are located at the fair. In addition, the ‘Fact Sheet Spain’ provides some more interesting facts and figures about the Spanish Guest of Honor’s appearance.

The Guest of Honour Spain also invites booksellers to a tour of the Guest of Honor Pavilion with “Book Speed Dating”. The tour will be held in English, and Spanish specialties will be served afterward.

Visitors can read about the state of the Spanish book market in the English-language trade magazine Publishing Perspectives, which has summarized the latest report from the Spanish Publishers’ Association.

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.
