  • What's On

    The London Book Fair exists to help people through the shifting terrain that is the publishing industry.

    Gathering people together and creating the space for them to make connections is what we're about. That includes the three days of the Fair itself as well as other opportunities throughout the year, including our meet-ups, seminars and events which take place all over the world.

  • Conferences

    LBF holds various conferences both during the Fair and throughout the year, exploring many different topics such as consumer insight, rights, education and inclusivity in publishing. There's something for everyone!
