Visit The London Book Fair

LBF exhibitors are creative book folk who make content come to life. Our exhibitors range from the giant publishing houses, the independents, and the publishers of blockbuster novels and academic texts, to the producers of children’s books and graphic novels alongside mobile companies and gaming start-ups.

At The London Book Fair, you can also attend over 100 seminars on the pressing themes in publishing today – from getting published to Open Access and audiobooks. Visit the fair and benefit from meetings with exhibitors, conferences, and other initiatives like our awards.

Come and discover what’s new in publishing

LBF has been in existence for 50 years, and in that time, we’ve built strong relationships within the industry that enable us to provide you with the connections you need to make your words come to life.

London is the epicentre of the English language publishing world, and we’ve been at the heart of this. Take the chance to make your magic happen here, and you’ll understand the superlatives our visitors use to describe our historical fair.

We are the leaders in creating opportunities in the industry, and we provide that opportunity across multiple platforms.
