Frankfurt Book Fair 2019

Published on August 9, 2019

Frankfurt BookFair (or in its native German, Frankfurter Buchmesse) is the world’s oldest and largest gathering of publishing professionals from around the world.  Buttercup Publishing is pleased to be exhibiting at this event for the 8th* time, showcasing our wonderful range of children’s illustrated titles for ages 3-9.  We can be located in Hall 6.1, stand D56, within the Messe, a purpose-built exhibition centre in the business city of Frankfurt.

According to the organisers, the fair is a major cultural event: around 7,500 exhibitors from over 100 countries, more than 285,000 visitors, over 4,000 events, around 10,000 journalists and bloggers make Frankfurter Buchmesse the world’s largest trade fair for publishing every year.


The Guest of Honour in 2019 is Norway.  Norwegians read more than any other European nationality, and the country has produced three winners of the Nobel Prize for Literature.


The majority of business at the Fair revolves around publishing rights, licensing and co-editions and we are very excited to be offering our titles amongst the many interesting and varied books on offer.


In other news, we are pleased to announce that we now have a warehouse in the UK, which can supply all your local bookstores.  Our new warehousing partner is Combined Books Services, based in Tonbridge in Kent.  If you would like to purchase our titles please use your usual channels, such as Amazon, Waterstones, and Books Etc. – all of whom can order directly from our warehouse.
