Celebrate the joy of reading at the book fair with over a hundred exhibitors ranging from big bookstore chains to local indie publishers spread across two floors of exhibit space.
MIBF’s second floor will be dedicated to special exhibitions featuring children’s and young adult book publishers, as well as crafts and stationery items. Aside from exclusive deals, and special features like new releases, bestsellers, and even collector’s items, watch out for the exciting lineup of events such as book signings, book launches, meet and greets, storytelling sessions for kids, special contests, workshops, and other activities to cater to book fair attendees!
