The trade in rights, the procurement of titles for translation, the licensing of works for audio book adaptations and suchlike - these activities make up the core business of the Frankfurt Book Fair participants. The content business at the Frankfurt Book Fair is focusing increasingly on value addition based on crossmedial approaches to content, projects and book characters, as well as the licensing of brands and characters, both into and out of the publishing world.
At the Frankfurt Book Fair, more than 600 agents from over 30 countries negotiate with their international publishing partners.
Agents and scouts have their appointment diaries filled to bursting in Frankfurt. To be able to complete deals smoothly and hold their discussions without interruptions, they must be able to work efficiently and avoid long distances between appointments. The Literary Agents and Scouts Centre in Hall 6.3 offers the perfect working conditions.
