Images from the Hong Kong Book Fair 2013

Late post but here are images from the Hong Kong Book Fair, 17-23 July 2013 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong.

The annual exhibition at the City Hall organised by the Hong Kong Publishing Federation could be regarded as the predecessor of the Hong Kong Book Fair. The First Hong Kong Book Fair was held in 1990 and this year it is its 25th year. The Fair has become an annual major event in Hong Kong with the number of visitors reaching new high every year. The organiser, the HKTDC, has always been striving to promote local reading culture. Apart form extensively inviting the public to the Fair to visit and buy books, it also spares no effort in organising diversified cultural activities during the Book Fair period with a view to enhance the contents and quality of the Fair.

During the past 24 years the number of exhibitors has grown from 149 to 504 in 2009, with corresponding growth of attendance from 200,000 to 900,000 in 2009. The Fair has developed from a mere promotion platform for the industry to an annual territory-wide major reading and cultural event for the public of Hong Kong.

Major Exhibit Categories:

  • Books and Publications
  • Children’s and Teen’s Books
  • Religious Books
  • e-Books & e-Learning Resources: e-Book Readers, Audio Visual Learning Aids, Educational Software
  • Multimedia Products
  • Stationery and Printed Products

Hong Kong Book Fair 2014 will happen on  16-22 July 2014 (Wednesday – Tuesday) at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong.
