The Book Fair verdict: New concept a success
The most political, but also the most youthful Book Fair in years/ visitor numbers increased by two percent/ taking stock of the LitAg, the Business Club and the new Book Fair concept
Frankfurt, 18/10/2015 - Salman Rushdie opened the Frankfurt Book Fair 2015 with a plea for freedom of opinion. And over the next five days, the Book Fair remained a place of debate about moral codes and the boundaries of tolerance. From an organisational point of view, the new concept of the Book Fair supported the dynamics of this year’s event.Director of the Book Fair, Juergen Boos, shared his impressions: "The new neighbourhoods created by the restructuring have strengthened the feeling of togetherness. At the same time, they've opened people's eyes to new areas of business. It’s now clear that there is still plenty of scope for all the communities to expand their international licensing business." And he detected euphoria in the industry as a whole: "2015 has been the busiest and most successful Book Fair for years! Exhibitors from all the different regions told me the same thing time and again in our personal talks."The Frankfurt Book Fair 2015 in detailPositive visitor numbers: By the end of today, the Book Fair expects to have welcomed 275.791 visitors (trade visitor days: 140,474).
