Frankfurt Book Fair 2012


AZ Books exhibited at Frankfurt Book Fair 2012 – the world’s largest book fair with significant trade and general public engagement elements. 
In all, around 7,300 exhibitors from approximately 100 countries were present, and the more than 3,400 events attracted 281,753 visitors. The presence of international publishers in Frankfurt is growing, and industry observers judged the mood among the publishers as more open and adventurous than it was a year ago. This also includes the integration of new players from the fields of technology, film and games into the Book Fair universe; and it means the relationship between publishers and readers is becoming ever closer. With roughly 1,000 visitors, the StoryDrive Festival made it clear that questions of digitisation, creativity and innovation are no longer just matters for the industry specialists.
It was a real pleasure to meet a great amount of publishers, printers, agencies, authors and visitors. We are grateful to all of you for joyful and unforgettable communication and cooperation. It is our honor to build business relations with such people and companies as you are.
