The offerings form part of the initiatives launched by the ADIBF to support its goals to encourage a love of reading; promote culture and knowledge locally, regionally, and internationally; and enhance cultural exchange and dialogue among peoples, leveraging the Fair’s role as one of the foremost global cultural platforms that brings together diverse cultures.

Discounts are also available on platform subscriptions, along with free entry tickets to prominent cultural landmarks in the emirate.

The Fair is committed to keeping up with the latest developments in publishing and creative industries, in order to offer the best initiatives to exhibitors and visitors, a rich experience full of knowledge and creativity, and an enjoyable journey through world cultures, all in an effort to promote a culture of reading and book acquisition.”

“The growing attendance from publishers and visitors at the Fair reflects Abu Dhabi’s role as a leading international cultural hub, underlining the emirate’s efforts to promote Arabic language and culture, and support intellectual and cultural exchange among peoples, in line with the objectives of the Abu Dhabi Arabic Language Centre,” Al Tunaiji added. “This year’s Fair offers a range of new initiatives and events, as well as a wide selection of books, including print, e-books, and audiobooks. The agenda also includes diverse cultural and professional programmes, activities for children and families, the Guest of Honour programme – which, this year, honours Egypt – and the Focus Personality for ADIBF 2024, renowned Egyptian novelist Naguib Mahfouz. Moreover, the Fair has launched a new programme titled Book of the World, which highlights precious works that have influenced world culture.”

For the second consecutive year, a ticket to the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair grants visitors a free one-time visit to the Qasr Al Hosn and Louvre Abu Dhabi museums, available for two weeks for each ticket. This offer runs from the Fair’s opening on 29 April until 12 May 2024.

Furthermore, the Fair’s publishing partners offer a range of discounts and exclusive offers for visitors.
