The annual Frankfurt Book Fair will take place October 9-13, 2013 and is considered the most important marketplace for books, media, literary rights, and licenses worldwide. The trends in publishing change faster than it is easily possible to keep up. Thankfully, the Frankfurt Book Fair brings all the new technology and innovations together in one location.

Prior to the Book Fair, many pre-fair events are scheduled, including the International Association of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers Frankfurt Conference 2013. This event attracts the leading figures from across scholarly and professional publishing and provides a program focused on strategic thinking, public policy, business models and key drivers shaping the future of the STM publishing industry. Access Innovations is pleased to be one of the sponsors of this fantastic event.
