Why you should visit
ADIBF is the marketplace for the publishing industry in the Middle East and North Africa. Over the years, exhibitors have benefitted from venues such as the eZone, which showcases the latest in electronic media and digital content. The Illustrators’ Corner has offered a platform for local and international talent to display their work and learn from market specialists.
The Spotlight on Rights subsidy continues to gain momentum and received 287 letters of intent this year. Our greatly enhanced professional programmes allow more exhibitors to network with new business partners in this part of the world while exploring business-to-business opportunities.
