The new location, the Transformatorhuis, was praised across the field from visitors to publishers.  

Karin Krijgsman, Fw:Books (NL): “We have taken part in Unseen’s Book Market programme every year since the event started. For us Unseen acts as a meeting point for both photobook collectors, as well as industry professionals. The new space this year has worked particularly well.”
