The Frankfurt Book Fair will remain on the Main for the future. Frankfurt’s mayor, along with Michael von Zitzewitz of the Frankfurt exhibition grounds, fair director Juergen Boos, and director of the German Publishers and Booksellers Association Prof. Dr. Gottfried Honnefelder jointly announced that the fair will remain in Frankfurt to 2022.

Boos said, “For an international event with the magnitude of the Frankfurt Book Fair, it is important to have reliability in the planning and a dependable partner in the organization. We found such a partner in the Messe Frankfurt in 1951 and we are looking forward to further long-term collaboration.”

This year’s fair will take place October 14-18, and China will be the guest of honor country.
