Why Exhibit
With Us?

We’re the Ultimate Exhibitors Hub

The Abu Dhabi International Book Fair is a unique platform for exhibitors looking to showcase and promote their brands. As one of the most anticipated events in the Emirate, the fair attracts a diverse range of publishers, booksellers, authors and visitors, all eager to engage and connect with exhibitors. Last year, we were joined by 1,150 exhibitors and received over 152,000 visitors from around the world.

We Represent Progress, Tolerance and Openness

We encourage objectivity and acceptance towards different ideas, thoughts and endeavours at each corner and session at the fair. We believe we must foster environments where concepts and solutions can be freely shared and debated, leading to a deeper understanding of the world around us. Becoming a part of this message as an exhibitor is sure to boost your brand.

We’re A Hotspot for Cultural Exchange

A melting pot of cultures from all over the world, the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair brings together people from different countries and backgrounds to explore, learn and grow. This makes it an ideal destination for exhibitors looking to engage in a multicultural and vibrant platform. Last year's fair was a testament to this, with 82 countries exhibiting or participating in our programmes and corners. These countries included the Federal Republic of Germany, which joined us as a guest of honour and brought its rich cultural heritage and individuality to the fair.

Our Programmes Are Diverse and Inclusive

This year, our programmes are rooted in inclusive themes and pillars that unite people of all ages and interests. Cultural, artistic, professional, children-oriented and more, they provide specialised platforms for everyone attending the fair. This bodes well for exhibitors looking to reach specific groups or who have something to offer to everyone.

We’re An Ideal Space to Form Partnerships

The Abu Dhabi International Book Fair is an excellent space for exhibitors to connect with high-profile guests. Our visitors and participants include a diverse range of government officials, publishers and literary icons, making the fair the go-to place to establish and strengthen collaborations. This is your opportunity to form long-lasting partnerships and expand your professional networks.

We Spotlight Our Mother Language

We celebrate our mother language throughout the fair and pay special tribute through the ‘Spotlight on Rights’ initiative. Anyone participating in the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair can register for the initiative, which provides financial grants to support translating content from and into Arabic and converting hard copies to digital formats.

Let’s Find a Package That Fits You

We have a variety of spaces you can choose from as an exhibitor, including open spaces that you can build however you choose or pre-set booths and stands that give you a structure to start with. The choice is yours.
