Visitor numbers at the 2014 Frankfurt Book Fair have been estimated at "around 270,000".
Speaking at the close of the five-day fair, director Juergen Boos said organisers expected visitor numbers to add up to around that total, which would represent a slight dip on 2013. In 2013 the total stood at 275,342 visitors, which was a drop of 2% from 2012, when 281,753 people attended the fair.
Boos said: “Book publishers are expanding the scope of their opportunities to the maximum. They are experimenting with content and technologies, and that spirit of invention pervades the Book Fair."
