Hong Kong Book Fair 2013

The annual exhibition at the City Hall organized by the Hong Kong Publishing Federation could be regarded as the predecessor of the Hong Kong Book Fair. The First Hong Kong Book Fair was held in 1990. At first glance, Hong Kong seems an enviable hub for bibliophiles. It is home to a buzzing book fair, a well-regarded literary festival, two creative-writing programs and Asia’s most prestigious literary prize. The Fair has become an annual major event in Hong Kong with the number of visitors reaching new high every year. The organizer, the HKTDC, has always been striving to promote local reading culture. Apart from extensively inviting the public to the Fair to visit and buy books, it also spares no effort in organizing diversified cultural activities during the Book Fair period with a view to enhance the contents and quality of the Fair to help authors and publishers exhibit their work.
