28th Tehran International Book Fair

Teheran Dgs 2014 44097

6 - 16 May 2015
Stand: Mosalla - Shabestan Hall, 1st floor
The Tehran International Book Fair (TIBF) is the largest consumer and trade fair in Central Asia and the Middle East. It is the most important sales market for Persian-language books from the entire Central Asian region as well as a significant market for Arab publishers and local representatives of western publishing houses.

For the Iranian population, the book fair offers one of the few opportunities to gain an overview of current Iranian book production in its entirety and to acquire books at reduced prices. American and European titles difficult or impossible to obtain through bookstores in particular are in high demand among visitors, who travel to the fair from all regions.

In 2014, according to official figures, 2,500 Iranian and 1,700 international exhibitors from 50 countries participated in the book fair. Fair organisers put the number of visitors at 6 million.

In addition to individual presentations by 17 publishers, current collections put together by the Frankfurt Book Fair will also be shown on the 40-square-meter German collective stand (GCS). There will also be an extensive supporting and professional programme to accompany the book fair.

The presentation of the Guest of Honour with the 330-square-meter German collective stand and a comprehensive supporting programme is organised and recorded by the Frankfurt Book Fair together with the Goethe Institutes of Italy with support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. To date, 25 important authors and illustrators – including Daniel Kehlmann, Ingo Schulze, Sebastian Fitzek, Frank Schätzing, Giovanni di Lorenzo, Günter Wallraff, Axel Scheffler and Katja Petrowskaja – have already agreed to participate in the fair’s literary programme.

For the first time, the Frankfurt Book Fair is represented in Turin with a German collective stand. Forty-three German publishers will present themselves in the publishers’ showcases and more than 20 publishing representatives will personally attend the fair, including the Klaus Wagenbach Verlag, with an exhibition to mark its 50th anniversary. In addition to children’s and young adult books and a wide range of German literature in Italian translation, other book collections will also be shown, among them graphic novels, the "Best German Book Design 2014" and the "Alexanderplatz" thematic collection. Alongside these, the longlist for the German Book Prize and "Vor dem Fest" ("Before the Party"), a selection of outstanding titles of contemporary German literature, will also be exhibited.

Please come by and speak with our colleagues present. They will be happy to introduce you to potential business partners and - moreover - inform you about the reasons why you should attend the Frankfurt Book Fair in October - either as an exhibitor or as a trade visitor.

Abu Dhabi International Book Fair

Abu Dhabi 2014 51052

7 - 13 May 2015 ADNEC (Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre), stand 11 E 06
The Abu Dhabi International Book Fair (ADIBF) is the most professional consumer and trade fair in the Middle East. It has developed into a central platform for exchanges between the Arab and international book sectors, securing its position as a leading fair in the region.

This year, the focus is once again on rights and licensing. After four successful years, the licensing-subsidising initiative “Spotlight on Rights” will also continue in 2015. The Rights Centre has become established as the meeting point for licensing deals with the Arab world.

Educational policy, along with economic policy, is a top priority in the United Arab Emirates. Roughly a quarter of the population of the UAE is under 14 years old. As a result, the government devotes a large part of the budget to education.

The German collective stand comprises 60 square meters and is financially supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. The company asfc – atelier scherer fair consulting GmbH handles the technical and organizational aspects of Germany’s participation, while, as is customary, the Frankfurt Book Fair provides on-site professional support.
