• About The London Book Fair

    The London Book Fair is the global marketplace for rights negotiation and the sale and distribution of content across print, audio, TV, film and digital channels. In 2021 LBF will celebrate its 50-year anniversary.

    Staged annually, LBF sees more than 25,000 publishing professionals arrive in London for the week of the Fair to learn, network, and kick off their year of business.

    London Book & Screen Week will still be taking place from the 9-15 March 2020.
