The Beijing International Book Fair (BIBF), now held twenty-five times since its inception in 1986, continues to uphold its principle of "introducing excellent books from around the world into China and leading Chinese books to the world". Over the past twenty years, the BIBF has been an event of the utmost importance to publishers, and has received major support and participation from domestic and overseas book and publishing industries, gradually confirming BIBF's international brand status, and turning it into a major international publishing event incorporating copyright trade, book trade, cultural events, displays, consultation services and professional networking.
The 25th Beijing International Book Fair will be held at the China International Exhibition Center (New Venue) from 22 to 26 August 2018. Since the world is experiencing the rapid development of publishing digitization, the 2018 Beijing International Book Fair (BIBF) will focus on the integration of media by setting up the all-new digital zone. This new exhibit area will highlight the world's latest developments in digital technologies and content industry including the in-depth fusion of the Internet and related technologies with traditional publications. Exhibitors in the digital zone will display new interactive media, technical and content services, AI and Big Data systems. The digital zone aims to establish the international and professional cross-border platform for cooperation, featuring integration and innovation for publishers and service providers in media. Exhibitions and descriptions of services by companies will offer solutions for the publishing industry's transition to digitization.
To discuss the new topics in the field of global digital/online publishing and disseminate the research results in the area, the one day Digital Forum will be held in the BIBF digital zone.
Hosted by the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television of the People's Republic of China (SAPPRFT), and organized by China National Publications Import & Export (Group) Corporation (CNPIEC), the BIBF is now a book fair in China with the largest participation and influence in Asia. The 24th Beijing International Book Fair or BIBF, held in 2017, attracted more than 2,000 exhibitors from 89 countries and regions in the world. It has become an important platform and bridge that facilitates copyright and translation rights transactions of many types, including Chinese and overseas print and digital multimedia publications, as well as import and export of physical publications and reading promotion.More information about BIBF – Beijing International Book Fair 2018 in AUMA's trade fair database
