last call WILDCARD @ #fbm16 Frankfurt Book Fair 2016

wild frankfurt book fair

For the second time, the Frankfurt Book Fair is awarding its Wildcard. The candidate whose exhibition concept manages to win us over will be awarded the grand prize: an 8-sqm-stand at the world’s largest fair for content. For last year’s Wildcard, we received 130 applications from over 30 countries. The business models ranged from digital bookshelves and literature apps about crowdfunding for authors to cross-media stories for children and many other proposals. The winner was Plötz & Betzholz Verlag – a publishing startup founded by two late-twenty-somethings specialised in YouTube stars. “Winning the Wildcard was a milestone in our company’s brief history. I’ll even venture to say that things never would have moved forward as quickly without the attention it brought us: Just a few months later we were taken over by Ullstein Buchverlage GmbH”, reports Felix Plötz of Plötz & Betzholz Verlag. @Twitter @Facebook

Who will participate in 2016? The Wildcard organisers at the Frankfurt Book Fair are also eager to find out: “Just how varied and unconventional present-day publishing can be – that’s something the candidates in 2015 showed us. In addition to an innovative product, we’re especially interested in presentation and marketing. After all, the Frankfurt Book Fair is itself the industry’s largest and liveliest marketing platform”, explains Markus Gogolin (Director, Marketing & Communications DACH).

THE ARTS+ marketplace for value chains across cultural & creative businesses


THE ARTS+, a fair for new business models in the cultural and creative industries, is celebrating its premiere at this year’s Frankfurt Book Fair, 19-23 October, targeting cultural and creative professionals as well as publishers and software/IT companies. Professionals from all areas of culture and the creative scene, brands, developers, publishers, technology companies and media representatives will meet in Frankfurt to share ideas through presentations, exhibitions, a laboratory, workshops and conferences, creating a unique new network.

The democratisation of content through digitisation and the subsequent questions on how to deal with intellectual property has created new opportunities: museums digitise their archives and make them accessible to everyone, all year round, 3D printers reproduce miniatures of designer furniture, technology companies use customers’ mobile photos for worldwide campaigns and galleries sell their art via Instagram. At the same time, self-publishing has become much simpler and cheaper due to digital progress. Indeed, all communication has become faster and more visual. For all forms of media, diverse sales platforms ranging from concept stores to blogs and social media to entire culture stores have appeared. As the world’s largest rights marketplace and one of the most important European cultural events, the Frankfurt Book Fair has now created a platform for this: starting in 2016, THE ARTS+ will be the first marketplace for all cultural content. It will also host a global think tank for the creative society.

THE ARTS+ will comprise presentations from publishers, special areas for thematic workshops and talks, salons and a centre for rights trading. THE ARTS+ is directed at anyone who produces, manages, exhibits, publishes, presents, remixes or refines cultural content – publishers, designers, architects, directors and curators of museums and institutions, software developers, media representatives, brand managers, artists, photographers and politicians.

The new marketplace will be located in Hall 4.1 on the fair grounds.

Audiovase™ @ Kickstarter


The Audiovase™ by Shuffle Three™ rethinks the music-listening experience and questions what users really want in an audio accessory. Until now the assumption was that listening to electronic devices required other electronic devices such as headphones or Bluetooth speakers to make the listening experience enjoyable but the Audiovase™ challenges that assumption by providing a simple, intuitive solution that uses form and surface geometry to reflect and amplify sound emitted by the device itself.

Designer: Joseph Morin (United States)
Inspired By: flower vases and brass musical intruments
Material: plastic, poly carbonate, matte chrome plating, silicone
Colours: White with gray and purple trim, black with purple trim
Dimension: 102 mm x 159 mm x 127 mm
