Meditation, EdTech start-ups and Kafka in VR: Frankfurt EDU

New education platform at the Frankfurter Buchmesse with start-up area and interactive events

Frankfurt EDU is the new international platform of the Frankfurter Buchmesse (10-14 October) for innovative concepts, content and technologies in the education sector. This is where trends for the future of learning are developed. How will future generations learn, and what technologies will they use? Will learning become easier and, if so, how? These are the questions Frankfurt EDU examines, with exhibitors from the education sector located in Hall 4.2 (international exhibitors) and 3.1 (German exhibitors). Frankfurt EDU comprises not only the Education Congress in the Congress Center on the Wednesday of the Book Fair and the LitCam “Kulturstadion” (culture stadium) stage in Hall 3.1, but also new stages and events in Hall 4.2, such as the Education Stage, Workshop Area, Start-up Area, EdTech Area and LAB, which serves as an interactive education laboratory on 500m² at the weekend.

“With Frankfurt EDU, our aim is to create a clearly structured area and programme that connects exhibitors and visitors there. This will be the ideal place for suppliers and target groups of learning content – whether digital or print – at the biggest trade fair for content. They will benefit from the internationality of Frankfurt and, thanks to professional events and matchmakings, will gain exclusive insights into local markets and industry trends”, says Robert Liebermann, Director Strategic Marketing at the Frankfurter Buchmesse.
