The Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre
The book fair is the Nordic region’s largest meeting place for the written word.
Gothenburg Book Fair 2023 will be the 39th in a row at The Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre in Gothenburg.
The Göteborg Book Fair is the most important event in Scandinavia for people in the book business. It is also a manifestation of arts and culture, a four day long literary festival, a tribute to freedom of expression and a place for readers and writers to meet and celebrate the power of stories.
Started in 1985 as a conference for librarians with 5,000 visitors the first time, the fair now gathers about 85,000 teachers, librarians and book lovers every year. Read more here.
Every year, a specific theme permeates the entire fair – a certain country or linguistic area, a region or a topical cultural issue. Read more here.
