Kuala Lumpur Book Fair

Just a quick reminder... it starts today!!

A little bit about KLIBF

The Kuala Lumpur International Book Fair (KLIBF) made its debut 28 years ago and is now the premier event for the Malaysian book industry. Since then, it has been an annual affair, looked forward to by the public and those involved in the local and international book industry year after year.KLIBF has always attracted publishers from the USA, UK and other European and Arab countries, Australia, China, India and the ASEAN community. It has also become the market place to service librarians of Malaysian universities and colleges. Most will spend their annual budget during this 10 day event.
The KLIBF 2008 will be held from 17 to 26 April 2008 at Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Its aim is to exhibit the latest publications, including educational materials, published and produced locally and abroad. Besides that it will also be a meeting point for publishers, book traders and readers from around the globe.Since the Ministry of Education places great emphasis on the learning of foreign languages such as Japanese, Korean, French, German, Arabic, Chinese and Indonesian, we foresee that there will be a growing demand for foreign rights.Apart from the exhibition there will also be workshops and seminars for the book industry to upgrade the level of professionalism within the book industry community.
Bursting with colour, pulsating with life, Kuala Lumpur offers an incomparable Asian feast for the senses. Be welcomed by a multicultural society. Here, you will discover a delightful fusion of three main races-Malay, Chinese and Indian. With its tempting array of exotic Asian cuisine and culture, it is indeed a unique melting pot of Malaysia. This fascinating tropical, modern city is less than one hour’s drive from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
