BERLIN, Oct. 19 (Xinhua) -- After last year's digital-only edition due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Frankfurt Book Fair will once again welcome visitors on site from Wednesday to Sunday, the organizers announced on Tuesday.

"The desire for in-person interactions is once again bringing the international book and publishing industry together in Frankfurt," said Juergen Boos, director of the book fair, at a press conference opening the event.

"Back to business, however, does not mean things are now back to normal," Boos said, adding that in addition to face-to-face events, the fair would also present a "compelling digital trade program."

Under the slogan "Re:connect - Welcome back to Frankfurt," around 2,000 companies from 80 countries will exhibit their products, featuring more than 300 international authors. Enditem
