NZ education publishers at Frankfurt book fair
After a three-year hiatus, Frankfurt Book Fair, the world’s largest trade fair for books, took place in October 2022.
New Zealand education publishers were represented virtually and in person at the event, which hosted 4,000 exhibits, attracting around 93,000 trade visitors and 87,000 members of the public.
Catriona Ferguson, Association Director at Publishers Association New Zealand (PANZ), organised the New Zealand stand, with support from Education New Zealand Manapou ki te Ao. The New Zealand stand attracted a lot of interest from attendees at the fair and provided a great opportunity to meet with book trade representatives from around the world.
Six of New Zealand’s education publishers were represented by PANZ and had a virtual presence at the fair: BIOZONE International, EduMaxi, Essential Resources, Global Education Systems, Huia Publishers, and Sunshine Books. Dame Wendy Pye from Sunshine Books attended the fair in person, together with several other New Zealand publishers.
