Exhibitors' feedback on MCC 2024

  • "Higher sales than last year"
    "After the break and the joy of seeing each other again last year, everyday trade fair life is now returning - in a positive sense. Since the pandemic, manga sales have developed very well and this was reflected right from the first day of the book fair. We sold 15 per cent more at our stand this year than on the comparable Thursday in 2023. We are certainly on the right track and already looking forward to the next editions of the book fair.“ -- Michael Cheng, Manga Programme Director, Egmont Verlagsgesellschaften
  • "A perfect match"
    „We are here with our own stand for the first time at Leipzig Book Fair. Previously, we were exclusively part of the Bastei Lübbe stand. [...]. For one thing, this means we can have direct access to our target group. It also helps to strengthen our corporate identity because we are far more visible. It's definitely paying off. We have been able to sell a lot of books." -- Pauline Slodczyk, PR and Social Media Manager, CE Community Editions
  • "Valuable feedback"
    "Generally, there is plenty of interest and we can connect with our specific target group here. Personally, I am impressed by how much effort the cosplayers put into their costumes and how respectfully everyone treats each other. MCC seems to be a safe space for the community." -- Sandra Türpe, Entertainment Procurement, Impericon – IC Music and Apparel
  • "Excellent location with direct access to target group"
    "We have direct access to our target group. It's not just fans of horror, science-fiction and fantasy who can easily find us here. We also made new contacts in anime and manga as we are of course featuring them here. Financially, the MCC has also been very positive." -- Philipp Jerulank, Head of Marketing, Ulisses
