The Abu Dhabi International Book Fair is a global platform where members of the creative and publishing industries come together to read, learn and grow.

The event is more than just a fair – it is a hub of opportunities where like-minded visitors can meet, establish partnerships, discover the latest trends and build up their passions.

The book fair attracts the region's most prolific content creators, creatives and reading fans through various traditional and digital publishing media. Its successes year after year have solidified its position as a pillar of the publishing industry on both regional and global levels. This year, the book fair honours Egypt and its immense contributions to the global literary, artistic, and cultural realms.

The event promises to host thought-provoking talks, innovative technical and creative workshops, electrifying live music shows, delectable cooking shows, and an array of specially curated activities for children and youth.

The Fair introduces the "Book of the World" pillar within the Cultural Programme, which focuses on one book each year that has influenced the literary and cultural process around the world, and whose influence has spread across cultures and time. This year's book of the world is "Kalila and Dimna" by Abdullah Ibn al-Muqaffa, with an impact that spans history and cultures, and the programme focuses on the book's literary genre, fairy tales.
