Press Release: Here comes the Book Fair!
The country’s biggest book event is right around the corner: the Manila International Book Fair (MIBF), which heads back to the SMX Convention Center at the SM Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City on Sept. 11-15, 2013.
Now on its 34th year, the MIBF still remains the country’s biggest and longest-running book fair. It showcases the largest and most varied collection of literature for leisure and academic reading. Everything you need from fiction bestsellers, to textbooks, to graphic novels, and even educational materials are all under one roof. Moreover, the MIBF is also the go-to venue for this year’s most awaited book launches and signings, dialogues with readers, contests, and other literary events.
After three decades, it has evolved from an event for the publishing industry and the academe to one of the most-awaited exhibitions for all sorts of readers. The MIBF has become a gathering of sorts for bookworms of all ages and walks of life to celebrate the joys of reading and the knowledge each book brings about. It has also been providing a venue for the exchange of ideas amongst players in the publishing and academic industry.
Co-located events at the SMX Convention Center will also capture the interest of book fair visitors. The National Conference on Language and Literature is slated on Sept. 10-12, while Educare, a conference on early childhood education, is slated on Sept. 13-14. The Best of Anime 2013 is also slated on Sept. 14-15.
The MIBF runs from Sept. 11-15 at the SMX Convention Center, Seashell Drive, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City.
