We are pleased to announce the new dates for Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2021: June 14 – 17. We believe these new dates will give us the valuable opportunity to meet again as an industry; as everybody knows Bologna is wonderful in April and even better in June! 

Additionally, we are delighted to announce a brand extension to our core offering through a new general trade publishing conference, exhibit and training programme: BolognaBookPlus will offer a global stage to debate the hot topics, that have become even more relevant due to the pandemic.
