The Sharjah International Book Fair (SIBF), which will take place from November 2-12, has revealed that its total exhibition area for publishers participating in its 35th edition has been already sold out.
This year has seen an unprecedented demand for exhibition space by local, regional and international publishing houses wishing to participate in the Arab world’s most prestigious cultural and literary event.
Due to the overwhelming demand, registration for SIBF 2016 was opened in October 2015 before the start of the previous edition – the first time this has been done since the fair’s inception in 1982. The 2016 SIBF will cover an area of 25,000 square meters spanning five halls at Expo Centre Sharjah.
