From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The London Book Fair is a large book-publishing trade fair held annually, usually in April, in London, England. While not as large as the immense Frankfurt Book Fair, held each October, the London Book Fair has grown in size and importance in recent years, and '23,000 publishers, booksellers, literary agents, librarians, media and industry suppliers from over 100 countries' now attend the fair. [1]. Book publishers come to London to publicise their upcoming titles and to sell and purchase subsidiary and translation rights for books from other publishers.

The London Book Fair is much less of an event for the broader public than the Frankfurt Book Fair. Prior to 2006, the London Book Fair had been held at the Olympia exhibition centre, but it moved to the ExCeL Exhibition Centre in London's Docklands that year. Due to generally unfavourable feedback about the new location from attendees, the book fair returned to west London in 2007 and took place at the Earls Court Exhibition Centre from 16-18 April.[2] The 2008 and 2009 book fairs were also held at the Earls Court Exhibition Centre.
