by | Jul 1, 2020 | News

The Sharjah Book Authority has announced that the entirety of the 14,625 sqm exhibitor space at the Sharjah Expo Centre has been sold out, with thousands of purchases by publishers from across the world for the 2020 edition of the Sharjah International Book Fair, SIBF, which is scheduled for November.

For industry professionals worldwide, SIBF is a key opportunity to tap into both the commercial and customer potential of the Middle East and Asia regions. All exhibition spaces were sold out since the fair’s organisers opened registration this February, which testifies both the cultural and market appeal of this 11-day event.

Alongside publishers, several government and semi-government entities, rights agents and other industry professionals, educational and cultural institutions, public libraries, research centers, education service providers, university libraries, as well as local and international media will make an appearance at SIBF 2020.

Staying true to tradition, the fair will have spaces dedicated for literary discussions, workshops, creative and artistic events, in addition to areas designated for managerial, administrative, and technical personnel who will communicate with publishers and facilitate their participation.
