(09/02/2020) The Leipzig Book Fair is held together with the reading festival "Leipzig liest", the Manga Comic-Con and the Antiquarian Book Fair next year from 27 to 30 May at the fairgrounds of the Leipziger Messe. The Leipziger Messe has reached this decision in consultation with the Advisory Board of the Leipzig Book Fair.
(09/05/2019) As previously announced in April, the Leipzig Book Fair will manage book sales starting in 2020. The participation conditions were published at the end of August. The new system has two major new features. All exhibitors may now sell books at their stands and at events; detailed FAQs have now been published. A new operator for the trade fair bookshop has been found: from now on, Hugendubel will sell books and media at the trade fair. Their selection will consist of titles submitted by the exhibitors.
