Literary Agents & Scouts Centre (LitAg) moves to Festhalle in 2019; Hall 5 to be reconstructed in 2020
Ahead of this year's Fair, event organisers have announced changes in the physical shape of the event in 2019 and 2020.
In 2019, Messe Frankfurt, the host of Frankfurter Buchmesse, will convert Hall 6.3 into a technical control centre, inaccessible to visitors. Accordingly, the LitAg will move to the historic Festhalle which is close to the 'City' entrance.
The following year the international exhibitors from Hall 5 will move into Hall 4, as Hall 5 will be knocked down and rebuilding will last until at least 2023.
The dates for the two Fairs are 16-20 October 2019, and 14-18 October 2020
