Five good reasons for you to take part at the fair:


1. The Leipzig Book Fair has huge potential:
With more than 2,000 exhibitors and 168,000 visitors, the industry's most important springtime get-together in the German-speaking world gives you direct access to readers, authors and professional partners involved in book marketing, in the facilitation of literature and the promotion of reading. 50,000 of visitors are trade visitors and professionals, among them 7,363 booksellers and around 23,961 school and day nursery teachers. This guarantees you the best possible opportunities to create and strengthen long-term customer loyalty. And with a traditionally strong Central/Eastern European focus, the fair also serves as a gateway to the east.

2. Presences here enjoy high levels of media impact:
Our promotion and press activities for this specific industry provide backing for your presence before, during and after the Leipzig Book Fair. In addition, around 2,600 journalists come here from all over Europe to report on the industry's get-together.

3. The Leipzig Book Fair is an action-packed event:
As Europe's biggest literary festival with more than 2,800 events featuring 2,900 participants, "Leipzig Reads" gives your company the opportunity to introduce authors, new products and programmes in 2013 direct to a very receptive public which is young, well-educated and willing to travel far to be in Leipzig. Alongside the Exhibition Centre, the large number of fascinating reading venues transforms the entire city into a giant stage, promoting still further the unusually communicative atmosphere of the Book Fair.

4. Perfectly satisfied exhibitors
For over 90% of the exhibitors the four trade fair days were a complete success. You will take part and recommend the book fair next year again, too. The fair supports the exhibitors at her fair appearance with a comprehensive service offering.


5. Leipzig - the trade fair venue for your appearance:
The technically sophisticated Exhibition Centre in north Leipzig is well connected to traffic routes and with its modern architecture, provides a suitably prestigious setting for your presentation. At the same time, the Leipzig Book Fair is laid out on the basis of short distances, offering exhibitors and visitors a compact and easily accessible format.
