Sharjah International Book Fair (SIBF), a subsidiary of the Sharjah Book Authority (SBA), is one of the largest book fairs in the world, the most prestigious in the Arab world and home to the most exciting literary event in the region.

Inspired by love of the written word, the SIBF seeks to spread the joy of reading, promote cross cultural understanding and bring the finest talent in publishing to the Middle East from all over the world. It is here that the finest books are showcased at affordable prices.

The fair was established in 1982, under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, in order to promote reading as a habit among the younger generation while instilling the love of literature among the people of the region.

Over the years, the 11-day event has evolved into a literary carnival with over 1256 publishers participating from 59 countries and attracting over 1,400,000 visitors. It is considered to be one of the pillars that elevated the city to be the cultural capital of the region 2014.

The fair not only provides an opportunity for book lovers to acquire literature at great prices but is also a perfect platform for authors and publishers to meet and discuss current trends and potential opportunities to work together. Sharjah International Book Fair has been awarded membership to various international organisations such as the Afro-Asian Publishers’ Association, GCC Book Committee and has been recognised by the International Publishers’ Association.
