You are cordially invited to come to this international book fair for small publishers and private presses, either as an exhibitor or as a visitor.
Nearly 360 exhibitors from more than 15 countries and 10,000 visitors form the largest marketplace in Europe for books by small publishers and for private presses.
For four days, visitors will find what has been produced in workshops on printing presses, some of which are decades old: Approximately 10,000 titles, of which 1000 are new publications. The activities at this central meeting point always have a cultural focus as well. More than 30 cultural and book-related events inform attendees about the latest ideas and trends for the publishing of literature and art and provide entertainment as well.
The Mainzer Minipressen-Messe also offers room for development: Seminars for young talents in the publishing trade, for up and coming publishers, or workshops by experts on red-hot subjects, whatever the case, this International Book Fair is frequently ahead of its times and offers themes which will prove to be trends in the coming years. Be it in the areas of multimedia, audio books or the Internet, at the Mainz Minipressen-Messe you will experience the authors and their publishers
live and close up.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 20th International Book Fair for Small Publishers and Private Presses from May 21-24, 2009 in Mainz, Germany on the banks of the Rhine River.
