The 29th Manila International Book Fair (MIBF), the biggest and longest-running book fair in the Philippines gets even bigger as it moves to the SMX Convention Center, the country’s newest and largest exhibition and convention center.
Major players in the publishing industry will gather once again for MIBF set on Sept. 12-16, at the SMX Convention Center, Seashell Drive, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City.
The move is in line with MIBF’s preparation for its 30th anniversary next year, giving all booklovers a glimpse of what is to come. Through national economic ups and downs, the MIBF has continuously contributed to the reading awareness of the Filipino people and has become a venue for members of the book industry to address market demands, launch new titles, and promote books and reading advocacies. With the theme “Words without Borders,” the MIBF celebrates the power of literature to cross the boundaries of time, place, and culture.
With over 300 exhibitors, the MIBF showcases the largest and most varied collection of literature, textbooks, educational supplements, general references, religious and inspirational titles, self-help books, management books, Filipiniana, coffee table books, popular novels, children’s books, art books, graphic novels, rare and hard-to-find titles, magazines, audio and e-books, multimedia, teaching supplies and services, publishers’ technology, and travel materials.
