Defining the future of creative content

18 – 20 April 2023

Kickstart your year in publishing with us

The London Book Fair is the global marketplace for story creators, the hub of the publishing world and your essential spring chapter.

From the publishers and dealmakers to the copyright pros, the commissioners and the global licensers, including those involved in rights negotiation across print, audio, TV, film and digital channels, at LBF, we make you the story.

The fair unites the book community for three days of business, networking and learning.

The publishing industry is ever-changing, and so are we.

We look forward to welcoming you back.

Keeping you safe

Your safety and your business are our priorities. At LBF, you can be confident that both are in safe hands. As well as carefully following the latest advice and guidelines, we are working under our own strict precautions to ensure we deliver a safe event for you to meet, learn and do business.

This means our event will look a little different this year, but these changes will allow you to enjoy the experience while keeping yourself and others safe.


Our exhibitors come back every year because we provide the perfect platform to engage with customers, build brand awareness and do business. Are you ready to be part of it?


Meet the 'who's who' of the publishing industry as we welcome exhibitors and guests from across the globe. There’s every reason to visit the fair and benefit from all LBF has to offer.  

What's on

The London Book Fair is packed with exciting and insightful events. From our Seminar Programme to our Authors of the Day - there is something for everyone.
