China Shanghai International Children's Book Fair

After five successful editions, the China Shanghai International Children's Book Fair (CCBF) has quickly become an important event for the global publishing industry. The fair provides a leading copyright exchange hub for children's books. It plays an important role in promoting Chinese children's literature internationally and reading culture among young children. 

CCBF has successfully brought together nearly 300 exhibitors from many professional backgrounds. Over 30,000 people participated in the three-day event last year.

The fair offers a wide range of activities. Some of the notable activities are the Golden Pinwheel Young Illustrators Competition, the Chen Bochui International Children's Literature Award, the Authors Festival,m the Shanghai Visiting International Publishers Programme (SHVIP), other professional seminars and events to promote reading.
