About the event


LIBER 2023 will take place as a face-to-face exhibition between 04.10.2023 and 08.10.2023. The International book fair will take place at IFEMA Madrid and will not have strict COVID-19 prevention measures in place. This is due to the removal of domestic restrictions. Spain currently does not have travel restrictions in place.

LIBER Madrid – A Brief Introduction

LIBER Madrid ranks as the most significant international trade fair for books and printed media for the Spanish-speaking market and is held at IFEMA Feria de Madrid in Madrid, Spain. It’s been going on for close to 40 years, and LIBER Madrid is one of a duo of fairs, which also features LIBER Barcelona. Each year, one of the two cities hosts the book fair. The last edition, LIBER Madrid, had one of the best turnouts in its history. The exhibition grounds were filled with over 11,000 trade visitors and more than 450 exhibiting companies from all over the world.

An Industry Profile

LIBER Madrid dons a new face every year because each edition its organisers select a country to be distinguished as the Guest of Honour. In the past, this distinction has gone to Argentina and Sharjah of the UAE. The full product line-up of LIBER Madrid includes classic literature, comics, children’s literature, maps, fine arts, education, dictionaries, applied sciences, encyclopedias, and academics. That is just scratching the surface, as many publishing houses are in one place. The book fair is one of the chief markets for the Spanish-speaking book industry, and it is a place where everyone from authors and translators to librarians, editors, and rights holders all meet to connect.
