Beijing International Book Fair 2018

22 - 26 August 2018

The 25th Beijing International Book Fair is being held from Wednesday 22 to Sunday 26 August 2018 at the (new) China International Exhibition Centre. The UK group, supported by the Department for International Trade (DIT), has grown 100% in the last 5 years, making us the largest foreign group at the fair.

The PA’s Publishing Marketing Report on China was updated by Paul Richardson and Chu Xiaoying in 2015, and in it they state that “catering for a population of over 1.3 billion with over 95% literacy, the Chinese book market is the largest in the world by volume, and the second largest in terms of purchasing power parity (PPP), after that of the USA. Official estimates for publishing, printing and distribution services for 2013 overall were 1.82 trillion yuan ($300 billion) an increase of 9.7% on 2012.”

UK Pavilion The PA in partnership with DIT, is organising the UK pavilion and is offering an exhibition package at a cost of £3,250.00 per 9 sqm stand. We also have one small stand of 6 sqm (3m x 2m) available at £2,250. If you would like to exhibit as part of the UK Pavilion click here for further information.
