18 – 20 April 2023

Three features, one experience - where in-person meets online

In 2022, we welcomed back the publishing industry to Olympia London for three full days of business. We also started a new chapter.

Alongside the excitement of our much-loved in-person event, we offered an online element made up of two parts - the LBF app (our electronic pocket guide) and the LBF On-Demand platform, which hosted catch-up content.

Designed to make LBF a complete experience, this was where in-person and online met.

In the run-up to next year’s event, we will confirm more information about LBF Online and how it will evolve – stay tuned.

How will it work?

The LBF App

The LBF app, which will be available before and during the show, is designed to enhance the experience of all event attendees and will combine useful features with essential event information. 

Use the app for: 

  • Floorplan and wayfinding
  • Full event and networking information
  • Exhibitor listings from all participating companies
  • Connect, message and networking opportunities
  • FAQs

LBF On-Demand

Our virtual platform will be open to exhibitors and visitors to schedule meetings – browse the exhibitor directory, send messages and make virtual connections.  

From 11 April, after our in-person event finishes, you can catch up with our seminar sessions and content you might have missed via our on-demand platform. 

It’s LBF on-demand, online and on the go. 

The London Book Fair

Join us between 5-7 April for our in-person event where we will reunite the publishing industry and celebrate you – the people behind the stories.



We look forward to welcoming you to Olympia London and virtually this year. To find out more about what’s happening at the event (online & in-person), visit our What’s On page.
