THE ARTS+ is a fair, business festival and international meeting place for the culture and creative industries which takes place at the Frankfurter Buchmesse (10-14 October 2018). Seeking a pioneering spirit, THE ARTS+ is the platform that brings together representatives of the culture and creative industries and innovative players from the technology sector. It is these individuals who, together with the help of digital technologies and new business models, are shaping the future. Architects, fashion designers, photographers, curators and publishers – all create and curate unique content that can be exploited even more effectively through the use of new media.
The trade visitor programme from 10 to 13 October 2018 is dedicated to the theme of cultural heritage of the future. Our cultural legacy of tomorrow lies in the present – more specifically, in the hands of politicians, museums, institutions, media companies, creatives, designers and pioneers in the fields of technology and the economy. The business festival THE ARTS+ is the meeting place for the future of the creative and cultural industries. Here, you can see, try out, experience and create innovation – and, in the process, participate in laying the foundations for the cultural heritage of tomorrow. Plus, important EU institutions, including the Munch Museum from Oslo and the network of European book fairs ALDUS, will be present as programme partners and exhibitors.
