2017.10.17 Frankfurt Book Fair 2017
Frankfurt Book Fair is one of the largest book fairs in the world, held in the middle of October every year in Frankfurt, Germany. The number of visitors exceeded 270,000 last year. For five days, from October 11th to the 15th, publishers from around the world will gather at this Fair which marks its 69th year. 

Prior to this event, the host brings together young and upcoming editors and publishing professionals from around the world for the Frankfurt Fellowship Program. Selected fellows will deepen their knowledge base on the German publishing landscape and build up their network by taking tours of publishing firms and bookstores, attending presentations on the market condition, and through meetings with publishers. It is a two-week program, and at the end, they will join the Book Fair, taking part in events and parties.

This year there will be 16 fellows from 16 countries including Japan. Furthermore, starting this year for the next 10 years, a Fred Kobrak Frankfurt Fellow will be selected from among the Frankfurt Fellowship Program. Fred Kobrak was internationally known as a heavyweight in the publishing industry. His surviving family will cover the Frank Kobrack Frankfurt Fellow's traveling and accommodation expenses.

Japan's Publishers Association for Cultural Exchange (PACE) and the Japan Book Publishers Association are planning to jointly set up the Japan Pavilion at the Fair. They are currently inviting publishers to run exhibits.

On the last day, the final round of the Deutsche Cosplay Meisterschaft will take place. This is an annual event where people dress up as anime or manga characters to compete for the best costume. Contenders who have won through the regional preliminaries all over Germany will show up, along with a sizeable number of cosplay fans. While we tend not to associate the historical Frankfurt Book Fair with cosplay, the connection is made through the fact that manga is considered a book.
