2012 Frankfurt Book Fair
The Frankfurt Book Fair takes place on October 10-14, 2012. It is the world’s largest gathering of the global publishing industry based on the number of publishing companies represented, as well as the number of visitors.
Each year the Frankfurt Book Fair is seen as the most important meeting place for experts in the publishing industry: booksellers, agents, film producers, and authors.
In addition, representatives from book publishing and multimedia companies from all over the world assemble in order to negotiate international publishing rights and licensing fees.
Since 1976 a country has been chosen as the Guest of Honor. This is a special opportunity for writers to represent their country and culture. The 2012 Guest of Honor this year is New Zealand.
