The exhibitors at LBF are creative folk who make content come to life. Ranging from the giant publishing companies, the independents, and the publishers of blockbuster novels, academic texts, children’s books and graphic novels, we have something for everyone who works in the publishing industry. 

Included in your ticket is access to over 100 content seminars, across the three days of the fair, on the pressing themes in publishing. 

For authors we have our Author HQ stage, Author's of the Day on the main stage plus the opportunity to attend our Writers' Summit conference. Please note LBF is primarily a trade show and we can not facilitate meetings to pitch to agents.
