We invite all publishing houses that are exhibiting with us to join us in our Publishers Rights Corner in Hall 6.3 on FBF-Tuesday.
It was first introduced at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2016. The Publishers Rights Corner is a response to agents asking to move their Tuesday meetings with international editors to the fairgrounds. Our Tuesday foreign rights clients will receive special Tuesday-tickets to send to editors. Editors can also register by simply sending their name, their title, and the publishing house they work for to email@example.com.
