In defiance of the euro crisis, the industry shows a new “spirit of achievement”

The Frankfurt Book Fair closed on Sunday with a small increase in visitor numbers.

Frankfurt am Main, 15/10/2012 - The Frankfurt Book Fair closed on Sunday, having achieved a slight (0,6 percent) increase in total visitor numbers compared to 2011, with a total of 281,753 visitors. The fact that the number of visitors on the trade visitor days declined only marginally (by 1.6 per cent) shows that the industry remains optimistic and is well equipped to face its challenges. As Juergen Boos, Director of the Frankfurt Book Fair, remarked, "Here at the Frankfurt Book Fair we witnessed the courage and innovative power of Europe, and of the international publishing industry. Despite the economic crisis in Southern Europe, all the important representatives of international and European publishing were here in Frankfurt. And the amount of interest shown in translations from the so-called smaller language areas, and in digital projects continues to grow." This was also evident from the increased significance of the rights trade, which has now become highly complex. The Literary Agents & Scouts Centre in Hall 6.0 grew by 4.4 per cent, compared to 2011. Around 100 agents more than last year held their appointments in the proverbial 30-minute tact, which adds up to an additional 1,300 meetings every day.
