Every year, a different country is selected as guest of honour at Buchmesse Frankfurt, the world’s most important book fair. This means a considerable outlay for the chosen country; many of its sectors spend several years preparing for the event. By now, locations & ideas has been the German partner agency for the invited country and responsible for all local services several times. Staff, interpreters, transport, hotels, offices, interns, print products etc., we keep a tight rein on all matters that need to be organised locally. That allows the guest country to focus all of its attention on presenting its literature and culture. We have already partnered with Brazil, Indonesia, France and Georgia and we will also be giving it our all for Norway in 2019.
