Trending topics at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2012
“New players are joining our industry every day and completely new relationships, product ideas and business models are emerging. We might very well refer to this development as the publishing industry’s ‘Big Bang’ moment”, said Juergen Boos, Director of the Frankfurt Book Fair, at the Opening Press Conference on 9 October 2012. “This year we’ve analysed where the change is most apparent. We’ve attempted to identify patterns and, in so doing, developed a ‘Roadmap to Publishing Trends’ that shows where new business models are starting to appear, what new cultural patterns are emerging, and what skills will be important in the future”, added Juergen Boos.
