2018 Frankfurt Book Fair

October 10-14, 2018

The Canada Stand will be exhibiting in Hall 6; however, we are in discussion with the Book Fair to secure the best possible location for the Canada Stand, providing maximum visibility for participating publishers and their titles.

From October 10 to 14, Frankfurt will once again become the meeting place for the entire publishing industry. The Frankfurt Book Fair is “the world’s largest marketplace for trading in publishing rights and licenses,” hosting publishers, agents, distributors, wholesalers, booksellers and librarians from around the globe.

Shared stand – $ 570

Publishers can share space on the Canada Stand with another exhibitor for an added fee per additional exhibitor. Each co-exhibitor receives one exhibitor pass and is listed in the Frankfurt Catalogue and, in the Livres Canada Books directory and website. Co-exhibitors must register with Livres Canada Books to ensure proper space allocation.

Pied-à-terre – $ 1,515

Publishers have different strategies when it comes to determining the most efficient and cost-effective way to attend a fair. Some prefer walking the floor to set up meetings rather than exhibiting books on their own stand. The Pied-à-terre option offers those publishers a shared meeting area with tables and chairs at which to do business.

The Pied-à-terre option includes:

  • 1 exhibitor pass;
  • use of the shared meeting area by reservation;
  • reception desk and service area;
  • listing in the official print and online fair catalogue and, Livres Canada Books directory and website;
  • regular information updates as the opening date nears;
  • Wi-Fi access.

This option is limited to one representative per registered publisher. The Pied-à-terre option does not include signage or display shelving.

Pay-per-title – $ 275 / title

The pay-per-title option is ideal for publishers who can’t attend the fair but still want to exhibit their titles on the Canada Stand. It’s a great way of testing the market for specific titles. Books are displayed face out, information on titles is given out to all interested visitors, and any leads collected on your behalf are forwarded to you after the fair.

The Pay-per-title option includes:

  • face-out display space for each title;
  • shipping;
  • collection of business leads.

Registration and Payment

Please note that, as per Frankfurt fair regulations, subsidiary/affiliate companies cannot register for smaller, individual stands to make up one large stand (i.e. 2 As to make 1 B). Should 2 or more affiliated companies try to register for individual smaller stands, they will be invoiced for the cost of the larger stand option plus any applicable co-exhibitor charges.

Space on the Canada Stand is limited and is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Publishers interested in exhibiting on the Canada Stand at the 2018 Frankfurt Book Fair should fill out the registration form online and submit a first deposit or payment in full as soon as possible.

A first deposit of 50% is required upon registration for collective stand options. The balance, including any extra charges incurred by exhibitors, will be invoiced after the fair.

Registration is effective upon receipt of registration form. Cancellations will not be accepted after registration. Exhibitors who withdraw after registration remain liable for full payment. A refund will only be made if we can find a replacement exhibitor. If we cannot find a replacement, the exhibitor must pay the full cost of the stand. Requests to change stand type options after registration are subject to a change fee and any such changes should be notified before March 31st 2018.

Any additional furnishings or accessories will be charged back to exhibitors. Prices available upon request.

Prices are in Canadian dollars, based on current exchange rates. Livres Canada Books reserves the right to adjust prices in case of any significant devaluation of the Canadian dollar.
