Dear Visitors and Exhibitors
It is with great sorrow and a heavy heart that we must inform you that this year's Leipzig Book Fair, scheduled for 27 to 30 May, will not take place. The ongoing corona pandemic, the current measures and restrictions on travel, as well as the associated planning uncertainty for exhibitors and programme participants, make it impossible to hold an event of this magnitude. The same applies to the Manga-Comic-Con, the Leipzig liest reading festival and the Leipzig Antiquarian Book Fair.
Nevertheless, there will be selected literary events this May to tide us over until March 2022. Further steps regarding registration and event concepts will be communicated to you in due time.
Leipzig Book Fair Prize
We cordially invite exhibitors at the upcoming Leipzig Book Fair to submit their titles for the Leipzig Book Fair Prize 20201. The Leipziger Messe GmbH is sponsoring this award, which will be presented for the 17th time , with the support of the City of Leipzig, the Free State of Saxony and in cooperation with the Literary Colloquium Berlin. The award, worth a total of 60,000 euros, is presented by a jury of seven experts. The 15 nominees will receive 1,000 euros each, the winners of the three categories fiction, non-fiction/essay and translation 15,000 euros each.
Registration deadline is November 30, 2020
Leipzig reads / Conference programme
Exhibitors at the Leipzig Book Fair can participate with their authors in the literary programme Leipzig Reads or with events in the conference programme of the Leipzig Book Fair.
Registration for events takes place exclusively online.

For more than 10 years, the Career Day at the Book Fair's Friday has been a meeting point for businesses, secondary/primary schools and associations with the up-and-coming members of the industry.
It is also planned that exhibitors will be able to present themselves here in 2021. If you are interested, please contact us by phone at +49 (0) 341 678 8011.
