Abu Dhabi International Book Fair*

Abu Dhabi 2012 7

30. April – 5. May 2014, Stand number: 11 F06
The Abu Dhabi International Book Fair (ADIBF) is the most professional trade and consumer fair in the Middle East. It has become the main platform for exchange between the Arab and international book markets and developed a reputation as a leading trade fair in the region.

This year’s fair will also focus on rights and licensing. The Spotlight on Rights programme, which has provided support for the licensing business for the last four years, will once again take place in 2014. The Rights Centre has established itself as the place to meet with licensing professionals from the Arab world.

Education and economic policy are top priorities in the United Arab Emirates. Around a quarter of the UAE’s population is under the age of 14, which is why the government applies a large share of the nation’s budget toward education.

Three years after historic changes rocked the Arab world, the Gulf states in the Arabian Peninsula – as opposed to the countries of North Africa and the Levant – are considered safe, and the economic boom continues there unabated.

The 60-square-metre German Collective Stand is supported by the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWE). The company asfc – atelier scherer fair consulting gmbh – is responsible for the technical and organisational aspects of Germany’s participation at the fair. As in the past, the Frankfurt Book Fair will offer on-site professional support.

Tehran International Book Fair*

Halle 5-1 Teheran Eigenbau 2012 37504

30. April - 10 May 2014, Mosalla - Foreign Countries' Hall The Tehran International Book Fair (TIBF) is the largest trade and retail fair in the Middle East. It is the most important sales market for Persian books in Central Asia and also an important market for Arab publishers and local representatives of Western publishing houses.
For the Iranian people, the book fair offers a rare opportunity to get an overview of the Iranian book market as a whole and to purchase books at reduced prices. Foreign-language titles are especially in demand among attendees from all parts of the country, especially American and European titles that are difficult if not impossible to obtain from bookshops.
According to official figures, 2,545 Iranian and 1,600 international exhibitors from 77 countries attended the book fair in 2013. Fair organisers estimated the total number of attendees at 5 million.
Interest in the German language is growing substantially – especially among younger people. German-language courses are offered at a variety of language institutes and private schools. The German Language Institute boasts more than 6,000 enrolments in its language courses per year. German language and literature is offered as a degree at four universities in Tehran and Isfahan.
The 40-square-metre German Collective Stand will include individual publisher exhibits along with the Frankfurt Book Fair’s latest book collections. An author tour will coincide with the book fair, featuring readings at universities and other event locations under the slogan “One Language – Three Countries”. David Wagner (Germany), Franz Hohler (Switzerland) and Sabine Gruber (Austria) will read from their works. A professional programme focused on “Ways to enter the digital marketplace successfully” with Steffen Meier (readbox publishing) will round out the programme during Germany’s appearance at the fair.

22.-25. May 2014, Stand number: 133/D14 Germany will once again exhibit at the Warsaw Book Fair 2014. The fair’s new home in a bright stadium will make for a very attractive and modern setting. The German Collective Stand will feature 11 publishers from the fields of children’s books, literature, how-to books, non-fiction and science.
The publishers’ exhibits will be supplemented by a selection of the Frankfurt Book Fair’s latest book collections:

The German programme will focus on the development of the e-book market. The Frankfurt Book Fair will team up with the Goethe-Institut Warsaw to organise a German-Polish presentation highlighting this theme. On Friday, 23 May, Jonathan Beck from the publishing house C.H. Beck, will give a talk focused on “Book Markets in Transition: New Challenges in ‘e’!”:
“Change” continues to be the number one buzzword for international book markets. The only thing that’s certain is that nothing will remain as it is. In addition to the challenges posed by changing distribution landscapes and strong players in the online book and digital media trade, publishers also have to constantly reinvent themselves in terms of content and format.
In this event, Jonathan Beck, Editorial Director of the German publisher C.H. Beck, will discuss the latest challenges and business fields that are emerging – and not just for trade publishers – with the creation of new digital formats. Following this, he will answer questions and discuss some of the issues covered in his presentation with … from PIK and event attendees
