It was great to be back in the enormous halls of the Frankfurt Book Fair again this year. The fair provides a great opportunity to meet old friends, make new contacts and catch up on the latest innovations in publishing. Frankfurt is on a different scale to some of the other international shows – eleven floors of publishing across six huge halls and more than a quarter of a million visitors.

For Out of House, this annual festival of publishing provides a useful forum to connect with new and potential suppliers from around the world and to meet with some of the customers already taking advantage of our editorial and production services. It delivers an inspiring reminder of just how vast the international publishing industry is.

As the Out of House team continues to grow and support more and more publishers, these international trade shows will grow in relevance and we look forward to having an increasing presence in London, Frankfurt and New York.
