About

For 57 years BCBF has been THE event in the children’s publishing industry. Over 1,400 exhibitors and around 30,000 professional visitors flock to the event each spring to experience the world of children’s books, illustration and multimedia content.

BCBF is much more than just a trade fair, both a vibrant business hub and a creative workshop space, where past and future happily meet the present.  

The fair has succeeded in bringing together a unique and diverse global audience and is now an unmissable show where everyone can explore the changing and multi-layered children’s publishing landscape led by the printed book, which remains the most important agent of change and creates the forward motion for the whole world of children's media.
